The Centrality of the Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12-19, 1 Corinthians 15:58)

Tony FelichTony Felich, March 30, 2014
Part of the Exposition of I Corinthians series, preached at a Morning Worship service


Without the Resurrection, there is no Christianity. If Christ wasn’t raised, there are undeniable implications.

I. If Christ wasn’t raised, death still reigns (13,16)
II. If Christ wasn’t raised, our preaching is in vain (14)
III. If Christ wasn’t raised, our faith is in vain (14)
IV. If Christ wasn’t raised, we are preaching lies (15)
V. If Christ wasn’t raised, we are still in our sins (17)
VI. If Christ wasn’t raised, those who have died are lost (18)
VII. If Christ wasn’t raised, we are pathetic and pitiable (19)

1 Corinthians 15:12-19

12 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. 15 We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. (ESV)

1 Corinthians 15:58

58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. (ESV)
