1 Corinthians 15:20-23

Short Version: 1 Corinthians 15:20-23

A Reading from the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians

Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.  For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead came also through a human being.  For just as in Adam all die, so too in Christ shall all be brought to life, but each one in proper order:  Christ the first fruits; then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ.

The Word of the Lord.
