1 Corinthians 15: 1-11

As we turn our attention to chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians, we come to a new section of Paul's letter dealing with a new topic, the resurrection of the dead. But before Paul gets to that matter proper, he takes time to establish very important ground work by articulating the bare bones message of the gospel. This "ground work" was vital for the Corinthians and it is vital for us today. We need to understand the gospel and hold firmly to it for it is the gospel that transforms our lives and sets our focus as disciples of Jesus.
