He is Risen!

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose 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 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

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 which 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, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, by man came 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 firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

24 Then cometh 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 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1 Corinthians 15: 3-26

  1. Happy Easter!

    The Resurrection – The First Glorious Mystery. Desire a strong Faith. Meditate on Christ’s Glorious Resurrection, when on the third after His death He rose from the tomb; and for forty days appeared to his Blessed Mother and disciples.

    The only begotten Son of God by His Life, Death and Resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Amen! Alleluia!

    The above is from in my yuge, little Rosary booklet.

  2. Alleluia Alleluia
    Now for the grief: Coincidentally I was watching King of Kings where Robert Ryan made a wonderful St. John the Baptist, better than Charlton Heston. Jesus was NOT baptized. Rip Torn as Judas was good too, but not ordained at the Last Supper and of course, Jeffery Hunter made a rather unimpressive Jesus, lame reading words.
    The greatest Story Ever Told: if you notice,von Sydow has his hair cropped at the back of the neck. I could not watch it without knowing that Jesus’ hair was never cut. One must wonder what this story tried to tell. I do appreciate The Ten Commandments.
    Happy Easter.
