    1Co 1:18,21 Ac 2:47 *Gr:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:2

    por el cual asimismo, si retenis la palabra que os he predicado, estis siendo salvos, si no creisteis en vano.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:2

    Verse 2. By which also ye are
    saved] That is, ye are now in a salvable state; and are saved from your Gentilism, and from your former sins.

    If ye keep in memory] Your future salvation, or being brought finally to glory, will now depend on your faithfulness to the grace that ye have received.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. By which also ye are saved , etc.] It was the means of their salvation, and had been made the power of God unto salvation to them.

    Salvation is inseparably connected with true faith in Christ as a Saviour, and with a hearty belief of his resurrection from the dead, which is the earnest and pledge of the resurrection of the saints; and because of the certainty of it in the promise of God, through the obedience and death of Christ, and in the faith and hope of believers, which are sure and certain things, they are said to be saved already. To which the apostle puts in the following provisos and exceptions; the one is, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you ; or rather, if ye hold fast, or retain; that is, by faith, the doctrine preached to you, and received by you, particularly the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead; for the salvation that is connected with it does not depend upon the strength of the memory, but upon the truth and steadfastness of faith: it is the man that perseveres in the faith and doctrine of Christ that shall be saved; and everyone that has truly believed in Christ, and cordially embraced his Gospel, shall hold on, and out to the end; though the faith of nominal believers may be overthrown by such men, as Hymenaeus and Philetus, who asserted, that the resurrection was past already; but so shall not the faith of real believers, because the foundation on which they are built stands sure, and the Lord has perfect knowledge of them, and will keep and save them. The other exception is, unless ye have believed in vain : not that true faith can be in vain; for that is the faith of Gods elect, the gift of his grace, the operation of his Spirit; Christ is the author and finisher of it, and will never suffer it to fail; it will certainly issue in everlasting salvation: but then as the word may be heard in vain, as it is by such who are compared to the wayside, and to the thorny and rocky ground; and as the Gospel of the grace of God may be received in vain; so a mere historical faith may be in vain; this a man may have, and not the grace of God, and so be nothing; with this he may believe for a while, and then drop it: and since each of these might possibly be the case of some in this church, the apostle puts in these exceptions, in order to awaken the attention of them all to this important doctrine he was reminding them of.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The word resurrection, usually points out our existence beyond the grave. Of the apostle's doctrine not a trace can be found in all the teaching of philosophers. The doctrine of Christ's death an resurrection, is the foundation of Christianity. Remove this, and all our hopes for eternity sink at once. And it is by holding this trut firm, that Christians stand in the day of trial, and are kept faithfu to God. We believe in vain, unless we keep in the faith of the gospel This truth is confirmed by Old Testament prophecies; and many saw Christ after he was risen. This apostle was highly favoured, but he always had a low opinion of himself, and expressed it. When sinner are, by Divine grace, turned into saints, God causes the remembrance of former sins to make them humble, diligent, and faithful. He ascribes to Divine grace all that was valuable in him. True believers, though no ignorant of what the Lord has done for, in, and by them, yet when the look at their whole conduct and their obligations, they are led to fee that none are so worthless as they are. All true Christians believ that Jesus Christ, and him crucified, and then risen from the dead, in the substance of Christianity. All the apostles agreed in thi testimony; by this faith they lived, and in this faith they died.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. If ye keep in
    memory what, etc. I see no good reason for departing from the arrangement of the A.V., which states that the salvation of the readers depends on their holding fast the word preached. 125 Rev. reads: through which ye are saved; I make known, I say, in what words I preached it unto you, if ye hold it fast, etc. This is certainly very awkward, making Paul say that their holding it fast was the condition on which he preached it. American Rev. as A.V.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:2 {In what
    words I preached it unto you} (tini logoi eueggelisamen humin). Almost certainly tis (tini logoi, locative or instrumental, in or with) here is used like the relative hos as is common in papyri (Moulton, _Prolegomena_, p. 93f.; Robertson, _Grammar_, p. 737f.). Even so it is not clear whether the clause depends on gnwrizw like the other relatives, but most likely so. {If we hold it fast} (ei katecete). Condition of first class. Paul assumes that they are holding it fast. {Except ye believed in vain} (ektos ei me eikei episteusate). For ektos ei me see on 14:5. Condition of first class, unless in fact ye did believe to no purpose (eikei, old adverb, only in Paul in N.T.). Paul holds this peril over them in their temptation to deny the resurrection.
