First Letter to Corinthians    15: 20-27

15:20 But now Christ has risen again from the dead, as the first-fruits of those who sleep.

15:21 For certainly, death came through a man. And so, the resurrection of the dead came through a man

15:22 And just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be brought to life,

15:23 but each one in his proper order: Christ, as the first-fruits, and next, those who are of Christ, who have believed in his advent.

15:24 Afterwards is the end, when he will have handed over the kingdom to God the Father, when he will have emptied all principality, and authority, and power.

15:25 For it is necessary for him to reign, until he has set all his enemies under his feet.

15:26 Lastly, the enemy called death shall be destroyed. For he has subjected all things under his feet. And although he says,

15:27 “All things have been subjected to him,” without doubt he does not include the One who has subjected all things to him.
