Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:14

_ _ your faith ... vain — (1 Corinthians 15:11). The Greek for “vain” here is, empty, unreal: in 1 Corinthians 15:17, on the other hand, it is, without use, frustrated. The principal argument of the first preachers in support of Christianity was that God had raised Christ from the dead (Acts 1:22; Acts 2:32; Acts 4:10, Acts 4:33; Acts 13:37; Romans 1:4). If this fact were false, the faith built on it must be false too.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:14

Then is our preaching — From a commission supposed to be given after the resurrection. Vain — Without any real foundation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:14

(5) And if Christ be not risen, then [is] our preaching vain, and your faith [is] also vain.

(5) The proof of that absurdity, by other absurdities: if Christ is not risen again, the preaching of the Gospel is in vain, and the credit that you gave to it is vain, and we are liars.
