1 Corinthians 16

1 Corinthians 15 Part 1

Chapter 15 is a long chapter, where Paul teaches the Corinthian church about the most important thing: the Gospel of Jesus. He explains why it is important that Jesus has risen from the dead, and how we can be certain of it: because Jesus has appeared to hundreds of people, most of whom were alive at the time Paul was writing. Among the people that Chapter 15 names are Cephas (Peter), Jesus’ best friend; James, Jesus’ younger brother; and Paul, who at the time was one of Jesus’ enemies. The only way that Jesus would be able to convince his friend, his brother and his enemy that he is God, is by rising from death.

It’s a short sermon this week because it was followed by a baptism and baby dedication.
