I remind you, brethren, the good news …
Corinthians chapter 15
In Church Slavonic
1 But I say unto you, brethren, the gospel, the same he calls for you to the gospel, and the priest, in the same room, and stand,
2 imzhe and saved by the katz word of good news to you, if you keep it: unless you really don't believe the faith.
3 Predear to you from the first, hedgehog and come, for Christ died our sin for the sake of writing,
4 And it was said that burial was buried, and as it happened on the third day, according to the scripture,
5 And it is supposedly Kif, the exact same one:
6 Then appear more than five hundred brethren as one, many of them remain hitherto, but the netsi are still more refined:
7 Then appear to Jacob, the same apostle to all:
8 Follow all, like a certain monster, appear to me.
9 I am afraid of the apostles, and those who are worthy are the apostle, the persecution of the Church of God.
10 By the grace of God I am, even I am, and his grace, even in me, do not care, but more than all of them work: not the same, but the grace of God, even with me.
11 If you know how they are, if they are, tacos are preaching, and tacos are a faithful.
1 I remind you, brethren, the Gospel (1), which I preached to you, which you both accepted, in which you were established,
2 to whom you are saved, if you keep the things taught as I preached unto you, unless they believed in vain.
3 For I originally taught you that I also (myself) accepted (that) (is) that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures
5 and that Kifa appeared, then to the twelve;
6 Then he appeared more than to five hundred brethren at one time, of which most of them are still alive, and some have rested;
7 Then he appeared to Jacob, also to all the apostles;
8 and after all he appeared to me, as a certain monster (2).
9 For I am the least of the Apostles, and not worthy to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am that which I am; and His grace in me was not in vain, but I worked harder than all of them: not I, by the way, but the grace of God, which is with me.
11 So then, I, whether they, we preach like that, and you believed so.
(1) Gospel – translated as "good, good, good news"
(2) Fiend – meaning not a bad person, but a premature baby, miscarriage
Once as a child, I entered the kitchen in the middle of the night with my midnight parents and asked with tears: “Mom, will you die too? And dad? And me? ”I do not remember what my parents answered me then. Most likely, nothing good. I myself have long been saved from the fear of death by childish fantasies about my own immortality and about the immortality of all who are dear to me. Until she believed in the resurrection of Christ and the need for fantasy did not disappear.
It is not for nothing that the Apostle Paul tells in detail about who Christ was after the resurrection, emphasizing that many of these people are still alive (including himself). The resurrection of Christ is a fact much more real than many photographs on the Internet. There are witnesses to this fact, and the apostle Paul himself is that witness. Why is this so important? It is the fact of the death and resurrection of Christ and the belief in this that fundamentally separates Christianity from all other faiths and religions. In the life of the soul after death – whether good, bad is not so important – many believed: the Greeks, Egyptians, and Hindus. But only the resurrection of the dead in the body makes death impotent. In the same fifteenth chapter of the 1st Epistle to the Corinthians, a little further the Apostle Paul says that if Christ did not actually rise, then our faith is vain, our sins are not forgiven and we ourselves will die.
But if Christ is resurrected … This means that our sins remained there in the grave. This means that we will be resurrected with Christ — if, together with Him, we die for our sins. I do not really understand how to die for sins. I think that the very fact of the death and resurrection of Christ makes sin powerless, and my resistance to sin is the death of the former sinning me, as a result of which the new self is resurrected along with Christ. And it is His resurrection that gives a new life to my soul. But I understand very well that I can now answer that little one, to myself: “Yes, we will all die. And then we will be resurrected. And mother. And dad. And I"
