1 Corinthians 15:8-11

Part 48: The Resurrection of Christ
Series: Getting Things Straight
Stuart Briscoe
1 Corinthians 15:12-19

A segment of the Corinthian church was denying the possibility of dead men rising from the dead. But the Christian Gospel insists that Christ rose from the dead. The contradiction had to be resolved in Corinth, for, as Paul shows, if Christ is not risen, Christianity is nonsense.

A. Historical evidence.
1. An empty tomb.

2. Numerous appearances.

3. Transformed lives.

2. God did it.
