Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:15

_ _ testified of God — that is, concerning God. The rendering of others is, “against God” [Vulgate, Estius, Grotius]: the Greek preposition with the genitive implies, not direct antagonism (as the accusative would mean), but indirect to the dishonor of God. English Version is probably better.

_ _ if so be — as they assert. It is not right to tell untrue stories, though they are told and seem for the glory of God (Job 13:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:15

If the dead rise not — If the very notion of a resurrection be, as they say, absurd and impossible.
