1 Corinthians 15:3

I delivered unto you—A short creed, or summary of articles of faith, was probably even then existing; and a profession in accordance with it was required of candidates for baptism (Acts 8:37).

first of all—literally, "among the foremost points" (Hebrews 6:2). The atonement is, in Paul's view, of primary importance.

which I . . . received—from Christ Himself by special revelation (compare I Corinthians 11:23).

died for our sins—that is, to atone FOR them; for taking away our sins (I John 3:5; compare Galatians 1:4): "gave Himself for our sins" (Isaiah 53:5; II Corinthians 5:15; Titus 2:14). The "for" here does not, as in some passages, imply vicarious substitution, but "in behalf of" (Hebrews 5:3; I Peter 2:24). It does not, however, mean merely "on account of," which is expressed by a different Greek word (Romans 4:25), (though in English Version translated similarly, "for").

according to the scriptures—which "cannot be broken." Paul puts the testimony of Scripture above that of those who saw the Lord after His resurrection [BENGEL]. So our Lord quotes Isaiah 53:12, in Luke 22:37; compare Psalms 22:15, etc.; Daniel 9:26.
