We Have a Living Savior!

Now, brothers and sisters, I (Paul) want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.  By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you…  For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance:

  • that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
  • that he was buried,
  • that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
  • and that he appeared to Cephas [Peter], and then to the Twelve.
  • After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time…
  • Then he appeared to James,
  • then to all the apostles,
  • and last of all he appeared to me also…

1 Corinthians 15:1-7 (excerpts)
