In this chapter Paul addressed the most important aspect of the Christian faith. Jesus was raised from the dead. All other major religions have a founder who is dead. But the tomb of Jesus is empty.

NewLSFB226: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – 1 Corinthians 2 and 3

Such rich teaching from Paul today. But of course, that is what we expect from him, isn’t it?
