Died and Rose According to the Scriptures

The apostle Paul addressed many problems within the Corinthian church. In 1 Corinthians 15, often known as the Resurrection Chapter, Paul tried to counteract some who were teaching that “there is no resurrection of the dead” (verse 12).
The first proof of the resurrection is the fact that Jesus Christ not only died and was buried, as foretold in the Bible, but He also was resurrected after three full days as He had promised (Matthew 12:39-40; Jonah 1:17).
