1 Cor 15

1 Cor 15:10-Paul-"by the grace of God I am what I am…not in vain…the grace of God which was with me."
 
Rebutal vs. Sagisees who say there is "no resurrection"
-1 Cor. 15:12-"Christ…rose…how say some…that there is no resurrection of the dead?"
-1 Cor. 15:13-"if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:"
          -yet another witness that those who die in Christ are also risen as Christ is risen-Compare 1 Thes. 4:13-17, 4:14 in particular-"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again[note past tense, hence already risen], even so[note it is the same with those that sleep in Christ]them also which sleep in Jesus[died with the testimony of Jesus Christ, Compare to Rev 12:17; 19:10]" 1 Thes. 4:15-"we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which are asleep[dead]."-Why? because they would already be risen. Compare 1 Eccl. 12:6-7-"the spirit shall return unto God who gave it"
-1 Cor. 15:15-"we have testified of God that he raised up Christ"-[note still past tense]
-1 Cor. 15:17-"if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins."-Compare Rom. 4:25
-1 Cor. 15:18-"Then they also which are fallen asleep[dead]in Christ are perished."
