The gospel message of Jesus Christ rests upon two indisputable facts, the death of Jesus Christ as propitiation for our sins, and the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Christ did not rise, then His death had no meaning. It would mean that Jesus was not the Son of God, that He was instead just another man.
It is because Christ rose from the dead that you and I know that He conquered death forever and that we can have eternal live with Him if we make Him our Savior. The work of our salvation was completed when Jesus Christ came out of that tomb.
Listen as Paul describes the proof of the resurrection of Jesus Christ in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:5-11.

Chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians is one of the most important chapters in the Bible. Why?
Because it discusses the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, and then it uses that fact to describe the resurrection of the believer.
As someone who has made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, when you think about what gives you hope, and what strengthens your faith, it is the promise of eternal life with Jesus Christ that lights the fire of your spirit. This chapter makes that promise a reality that you can rest your faith on.
Listen to five proofs that the Bible is true and then rejoice as Paul gives us the facts of the death, burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.

God is a God of order.
Paul tells the Corinthians, and the modern day tongues movement, that if there is chaos and confusion while the gift of tongues is exercised, then it is not of God.
He then establishes the rules that are to govern the use of the spiritual gifts.
Listen to what the Word of God has to say about the practice of tongues and discover the history of the modern day tongues movement in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Corinthians 14:26-40.

Why would God create the gift of tongues and then have Paul spend so much time talking about what a poor gift it is?
Paul answers this question by first talking about the limitations of speaking in tongues, and then he establishes the reason for the gift of tongues.
Listen and learn what the Word of God has to say about this spiritual gift that is so abused and misused in our world today in a verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 14:7-25.

In this lesson Paul completes his description of agape love, and then he compares it and the gift of prophecy to the gift of tongues.
He tells us of the permanence of agape love and how tongues fail.
He tells us of the supremacy of prophecy over tongues.
He tells us to desire that which is permanent and that which is of more value to the body of Christ.
Here what Paul has to say in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Corinthians 13:8 to 14:6.
Listen and be blessed by the Word of God as we learn a description of Jesus Christ.
