What if...?

1 Corinthians 15 is called The Resurrection Chapter of the Bible. Paul begins the chapter by giving a number of proofs for the Resurrection. But then in 15:12, Paul changes his tactic a bit. He is still attempting to prove the resurrection. But instead of giving proofs that you can see and touch like the first three proofs, he switches to a logical proof. He engages in counterfactual thinking. He asks, “What if?” What if Jesus wasn’t raise from the dead? And then he draws out the logical conclusion of that position.
