And, brothers, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand;
by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures;
and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the Twelve.
Afterward He was seen by over five hundred brothers at once, of whom the greater part remain until this present day, but also some fell asleep.
