Ressurection: Witnesses to the Ressurection (1 Corinthians 15:1-11)

James Bloice Smith, April 15, 2018
Part of the Resurrection series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The differing but overlapping accounts of Jesus' resurrection add weight and power to the account of events because if they were all the same they could be said to have copied each other.
Our faith is based on real world evidence, the evidence of Jesu's resurrection in the many, many contemporary accounts.

1 Corinthians 15:1-11

1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6After 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. 7After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. 9For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10But 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. 11Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed. (KJV)
