Abstract: Chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians presents us with one of the great theological treasures of the Christian church. By raising Jesus Christ from the dead, God has set in motion a chain of events which will eventually lead to the final destruction of death itself and hence the inevitable fact and nature of our own resurrection. 1 Corinthians 15 can be divided in three sections. In the first part (15:1-11) Paul re-establishes the commonly held ground by all believers that Jesus Christ died and was raised. The second section (15:12-34) concerns Paul's response to the Corinthians' denial of their own resurrection from the dead. In the final part (15:35-58) Paul speaks mainly of how the dead are raised and the nature of their risen body. It is believed that 1 Corinthians 15 was written in A.D. 54 or 5 5, less than thirty years after the Easter event and ten years before Mark's gospel was written. Paul's conversion can be dated in A.D. 33, three years after Christ's crucifixion.
