In 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 Paul writes, “I delivered to you as of first importance that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.” This is the primary data of the gospel preached by Paul: not only that Christ died, but also that Christ has been raised. Christ’s resurrection “[wove] its way into the very fabric of Paul’s thinking, so that it emerges all over the place not as one topic among others, to be dealt with and then left behind, but as part of the structure of everything else” (N.T. Wright).
