Died and Rose According to the Scriptures

1 Corinthians 15:3-4  

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day 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).
