1Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. (New American Standard Version: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
1Now, brothers [and sisters], I want you to remember the Good News I told you about. You received this message, and you continue strong in it. 2You are saved by this message. But you must continue believing the things I told you. If you don't do that, then you believed for nothing. 3I gave you the message that I received. I told you the most important things: that Christ died for our sins, like the Scriptures say; 4that Christ was buried and was raised to life on the third day, like the Scriptures say. (Easy-to-Read Version: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
