THE EVANGELISM DEFINED
And brothers, I make known to you the evangelism I evangelized to you - which you also took, wherein you also stand; 2 through which also you are saved if you hold the word I evangelized to you; except lest you trust in vain. 3 For I first delivered to you of all I also took - that Messiah died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 and that he was buried; and that he rose the third day according to the scriptures: 5 and that Kepha saw him, then the twelve: 6 then over five hundred brothers saw him at once, most of whom abide to now; but some fell asleep; 7 then Yaaqovos saw him; then all the apostles; 8 and last of all I saw him, just as thoughas one miscarried: 9 for I am the least of the apostles - who am not adequate to be called an apostle: because I persecuted the ecclesia of Elohim. 10 And by the charism of Elohim, I am what I am: and his charism to me became not in vain; but I labored more superabundantly than they all: yet not I - but the charism of Elohim within me. 11 So whether I, whether they, thus we preached, and thus you trusted. 12
THE RESURRECTION, ESSENTIAL TO THE TRUST
Now if we preach that Messiah rose from the dead, how word some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 And if there is no resurrection of the dead Messiah rose not: 14 and if Messiah rose not, then our preaching is vain and also your trust is vain. 15 Yes, and we are found pseudo witnesses of Elohim; because we witnessed that Elohim raised the Messiah: whom he raised not - if indeed the dead rise not. 16 For if the dead rise not, Messiah rose not: 17 And if Messiah rose not, your trust is vain - you are still in your sins. 18 Then also they who fell asleep in Messiah are destroyed. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Messiah, we are least mercied of all humanity. 20
THE SEQUENCE OF THE RESURRECTION
And now, Messiah rose from the dead and became the firstlings of them who slept. 21 For since through humanity, death, also through humanity, the resurrection of the dead. 22 For exactly as in Adam all die, even thus in the Messiah all enliven: 23 and each in his own order: Messiah the firstlings; then whoever are of the Messiah at his parousia. 24 Then the completion/shalom when he delivers the sovereigndom to Elohim - even the Father; when he inactivates all hierarchies and all authority and dynamis. 25 For he must reign, until whenever he puts all enemies under his feet. 26 The final enemy to inactivate is death. 27 For he subjugates all under his feet. and when he says, All are subjugated, it is evident that he is excepted, who subjugated all under him. 28 And when all subjugates to him then the Son himself also subjugates to him who subjugated all under him that Elohim be all in all. 29 Else what do they who are baptized for the dead if the dead rise not at all? Why then are they baptized for the dead? 30 And why stand we in peril every hour? 31 I die daily, boasting in what I have in Messiah Yah Shua our Adonay. 32 If after the manner of humanity I strove with beasts at Ephesus, what benefit I, if the dead rise not? Eat and drink - for tomorrow we die. 33 Be not seduced; evil homilies corrupt kind habits. 34 Sober up justly and sin not; for some are unknowing of Elohim: I word this to shame you. 35
THE MANNER OF THE RESURRECTION
But some say, How are the dead raised? And with what body come they? 36 You thoughtless! What you spore enlivens not unless it die: 37 and what you spore, you spore not the body to be, but a naked kernel, if perhaps of grain or of some other: 38 and Elohim gives a body exactly as he wills and to each sperma its own body. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but indeed there is one flesh of humanity another flesh of animals another of fishes another of flyers; 40 also bodies of the heavenlies and bodies of the earthly: but indeed the glory of the heavenlies is another and of the earthly is another: 41 one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars: for star thoroughly surpasses star in glory. 42 Thus also the resurrection of the dead: spored in corruption; raised in incorruption: 43 spored in dishonor; raised in glory: spored in frailty; raised in dynamis: 44 spored a soulical body; raised a spiritual body. There is a soulical body and there is a spiritual body. 45 And thus it is scribed, The first human Adam became into a living soul; the final Adam into an enlivening spirit. 46 Rather the spiritual is not first; but the soulical - and then the spiritual. 47 The first human is dust from the earth; the second human is Adonay from the heavens. 48 Such as the dust, such also those of dust: and such as the heavenlies, such also those of the heavenlies. 49 And exactly as we bear the icon of the dust we also bear the icon of the heavenlies. 50 And this I say brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the sovereigndom of Elohim; corruptibility inherits not incorruptibility. 51
THE MYSTERY OF THE RESURRECTION
Behold, I word you a mystery; indeed, we all sleep not, and we all change; 52 in a moment - in the atom of an eye - in the final trumpet: for indeed it trumps; and the dead rise incorruptible and we all change. 53 For this corruptible must endue athanasia; and this mortal must endue immortality. 54 So when this corruptible endues incorruptibility and this mortal endues athanasia - then becomes the word that is scribed, Death is swallowed in triumph. Isaiah 25:8 55 O death, where is your sting? O hades/sheol, where is your triumph? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the dynamis of sin is the torah. 57 And to Elohim - charism to him who gives us the triumph through our Adonay Yah Shua Messiah. 58 So my beloved brothers, become grounded; unmoveable; always superabounding in the work of Adonay knowing that your labor in Adonay is not in vain.
