1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1 Now I declare to you, brethren, the
Good News which I preached to you,
which also you accepted, in which you
also stand.
2 And you are saved by it, that is if you
hold firmly to the word which I
preached to you. Otherwise, you
believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you, first of all, what
I also received: that Christ died for our
sins according to the Scriptures,
4 that he was buried, that he was
raised on the third day according to the
Scriptures,
5 and that he appeared to Kephas,
then to the Twelve.
6 After that, he appeared to over five
hundred brethren at once, most of
whom remain [alive] until now, but
some have also fallen asleep.
7 Then he appeared to James, then to
all the apostles,
8 and last of all, as to the child born at
the wrong time, he appeared to me
also.
