Whiston(i) 12 Now if Christ be preached that he is risen from the dead, how say some among you, that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 Then [is] our preaching vain, your faith [is] also vain. 15 Yea, we are found false witness of God; because we have testified of God, that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up. 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 18 Then they also who are fallen asleep in Christ, are perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. 20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, the first-fruits of them that are fallen asleep. 21 For since by man was death, by man is also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits, afterward they that are Christ's, at his coming. 24 Then is the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority, and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under [him, it is] manifest that he is excepted who did put all things under him. 27 The last enemy [that] shall be destroyed, [is] death.
