The Resurrection of the Dead
1 Corinthians 15:12-34
12 Now if it be preached, that Christ is risen from the dead, how say some among you, that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 For if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen;
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 And we are found also false witnesses of God, for we have testified of God, that he hath raised up Christ, whom he hath not raised up, if so be the dead be not raised.
16 For if the dead be not raised, then is Christ not raised.
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
18 And so they which are asleep in Christ, are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and was made the firstfruits of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: the firstfruits is Christ, afterward, they that are of Christ, at his coming shall rise again.
24 Then shall be the end, when he hath delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father, when he hath put down all rule, and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign till he hath put all his enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed, is death.
27 For he hath put down all things under his feet. (And when he saith that all things are subdued to him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put down all things under him.)
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him, that did subdue all things under him, that God may be all in all.
29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for dead? If the dead rise not at all, why are they then baptized for dead?
30 Why are we also in jeopardy every hour?
31 By our rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
32 If I have fought with beasts at Ephesus after the manner of men, what advantageth it me, if the dead be not raised up? Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die.
33 Be not deceived: Evil speakings corrupt good manners.
34 Awake to live righteously, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God, I speak this to your shame.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
