1 Corinthians 15:20-28 – Long version

All people will be brought to life in Christ.

Long version:  1 Corinthians 15:20-28

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; then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has destroyed every sovereignty and every authority and power.  For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.  The last enemy to be destroyed is death, for “he subjected everything under his feet.”  But when it says that everything has been subjected, it is clear that it excludes the one who subjected everything to him.  When everything is subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to the one who subjected everything to him, so that God my be all in all.

The Word of the Lord.
