Christ has not been raised (1 Cor. 15:16)

“If the dead

Are not raised,

Then Christ

Has not been raised.”

εἰ γὰρ νεκροὶ οὐκ ἐγείρονται, οὐδὲ Χριστὸς ἐγήγερται·

Paul said that if the dead are not raised (εἰ γὰρ νεκροὶ οὐκ ἐγείρονται), then Christ has not been raised (οὐδὲ Χριστὸς ἐγήγερται).  Paul summarized it very clearly.  If the dead do not rise, then Christ has not risen.  Paul had proclaimed just the opposite.  Christ has risen, so that all his followers may rise from the dead.  Paul tied the resurrection of Jesus to the resurrection of his followers without any ambiguity.  Do you believe that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead?
