A summary of the good news

15:1 Moreover, achim, I declare to you the good news which I proclaimed to you, which also you have received, and wherein you stand;

15:2 By which also you are saved, if you keep in memory what I proclaimed to you, unless you have believed in vain.

15:3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how that Mashiach died for our sins according to the scriptures;

15:4 And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

15:5 And that He was seen of Kefa, then of the twelve:

15:6 After that, He was seen of above five hundred achim at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some are fallen asleep.

15:7 After that, He was seen of Yaakov; then of all the shalichim.

15:8 And last of all He was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

15:9 For I am the least of the shalichim, that am not meet to be called a Shliach, because I persecuted the assembly of Elohim (אלהים).

15:10 But by the grace of Elohim (אלהים) I am what I am: and His grace which [was bestowed] upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of Elohim (אלהים) which was with me.

15:11 Therefore whether [it were] I or they, so we proclaim, and so you believed.

15:12 Now if Mashiach be proclaimed that He rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Mashiach not risen:

15:14 And if Mashiach be not risen, then [is] our proclaiming vain, and your emunah [is] also vain.

15:15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of Elohim (אלהים); because we have testified of Elohim (אלהים) that He raised up Mashiach: whom He raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Mashiach raised:

15:17 And if Mashiach be not raised, your faith [is] vain; you are yet in your sins.

15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Mashiach are perished.

15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Mashiach, we are of all men most miserable.

Yehoshua firstfruits offering of the counting of the omer

15:20 But now is Mashiach risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept.

15:21 For since by man [came] death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead.

15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Mashiach shall all be made alive.

15:23 But every man in His own order: Mashiach the firstfruits; afterward they that are Mashiach's at His coming.

15:24 Then [comes] the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to Elohim (אלהים), even ha AVI; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

15:25 For He must reign, till He have put all enemies under His feet.

15:26 The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed [is] death.

15:27 For He have put all things under His feet. But when He says all things are put under [Him, it is] manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under Him.

15:28 And when all things shall be subdued to Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject to Him that put all things under Him, that Elohim (אלהים) may be all in all.

15:29 Else what shall they do which are immersed for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then immersed for the dead?

15:30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?

15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Mashiach Yehoshua (יהושע) Adoneinu, I die daily.

15:32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Éphesos, what advantages it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

15:34 Awake to tzedakah, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of Elohim (אלהים): I speak [this] to your shame.

Resurrection Promised

15:35 But some [man] will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

15:36 [You] fool, that which you sows is not quickened, except it die:

15:37 And that which you sows, you sows not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other [grain]:

15:38 But Elohim (אלהים) gives it a body as it have pleased Him, and to every seed His own body.

15:39 All flesh [is] not the same flesh: but [there is] one [kind of] flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, [and] another of birds.

15:40 [There are] also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial [is] one, and the [glory] of the terrestrial [is] another.

15:41 [There is] one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for [one] star differs from [another] star in glory.

15:42 So also [is] the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [was made] a quickening spirit.

15:46 However that [was] not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

15:47 The first man [is] of the earth, earthy: the second man [is] Adonay from heaven.

15:48 As [is] the earthy, such [are] they also that are earthy: and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] they also that are heavenly.

15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

15:50 Now this I say, achim, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Elohim (אלהים); neither Does corruption inherit incorruption.

15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

15:52Shofar-brown.gif In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last shofar blast: for the shofar shall sound, and the Mesim (dead) shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality.

15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

15:55 O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

15:56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the Torah.

15:57 But thanks [be] to Elohim (אלהים), which gives us the victory through Adoneinu Yehoshua Mashiach.

15:58 Therefore, my beloved achim, be you steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of Adonay, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in Adonay.
