B. The Rebuttal to ``No Resurrection''
12 But if Christ is proclaimed that He has been araised from the dead, how is it that some among you say that there is 1no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Christ been raised.
14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is 1avain; your faith is 1bvain also.
15 And also we are found to be false witnesses of God because we have testified concerning God that He araised Christ, whom He did not raise, if indeed the dead are not raised.
16 For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised.
17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is 1futile; you are 2still in your asins.
18 Then also those who have 1afallen asleep in Christ have 2perished.
19 If it is 1only that we have ahoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most miserable.
