No Doubt About It

today's reading.
1 Corinthians 15:1-21 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead...
1 Corinthians 15:1-21

1 Corinthians 15:1-21think about it.
What debate does Paul address here (15:12-13)? What are the implications of no resurrection (15:13-16)? What would our personal condition be (15:17-19)? How have you seen people handle dying when they have no hope?

the blog.
I love Paul. He just tells it like it is. He's bold and kind of in your face, but his words and message are clear. Today in 1 Corninthians 15:1-21 Paul is speaking to the church in Corinth, reminding and reinforcing to them the truth about Jesus' death and resurrection and the hope we have as a result.

"But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive" (vs. 20-22).

So how can we draw on 1 Corinthians 15:1-21 to give us hope knowing that at some point in the future we, too, will face death? Tami W.
