The Gospel Changes Everything (1 Corinthians 15:1-11) - 10/2/22
The entire chapter is a doctrinal message on the resurrection
They were doubting the truthfulness of the resurrection.
Evidently, they were questioning the resurrection of believers

Their issue was the resurrection, but Paul knew he needed to start first with basics of the Gospel.

His resurrection. Our resurrection
