1 Corinthians 15:3

First of all (en prwtoiv).
Among first things. In primis. Not to time, but to importance.

Which I also received (o kai parelabon).
Direct revelation claimed as about the institution of the Lord's Supper (11:23) and same verbs used (paredwka, parelabon). Four items given by Paul in explaining "the gospel" which Paul preached. Stanley calls it (verses 1-11) the creed of the early disciples, but "rather a sample of the exact form of the apostle's early teaching, than a profession of faith on the part of converts" (Vincent). The four items are presented by four verbs (died, apetanen, was buried, etaph, hath been raised, eghgertai, appeared, wpth).

Christ died (Xristov apetanen).
Historical fact and crucial event.

For our sins (uper twn amartiwn hmwn).
Huper means literally over, in behalf, even instead of (Galatians 3:13), where used of persons. But here much in the sense of peri (Galatians 1:14) as is common in Koine. In 1 Peter 3:18 we have peri amartiwn, uper adikwn.

According to the Scriptures (kata tav grapav).
As Jesus showed (Luke 22:37; 24:25) and as Peter pointed out (Acts 2:25-27; 3:35) and as Paul had done (Acts 13:24; 17:3). Cf. Romans 1:2.
