Paul's Summary of the Gospel 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-7
Let me remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before.
The Good News of the Gospels is that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead as he promised and as Scripture had prophesied.
I told you..... I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me.
1. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said.
2. He was buried.
3. He was raised from the dead on the third day, as the Scriptures said.
He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve.
After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.
6. Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles.
Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.
For I am the least of all the apostles. In fact, I’m not even worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted God’s church.
