The greatest knockout of all time smashed into history twenty centuries ago. It was a stunning one-two combination punch of two headline events–the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. The Apostle Paul bedrocked the Gospel on these two key historical events and gives an unassailable defense of the Gospel.

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as it were to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
