Short version: 1 Corinthians 15:20-23

A Reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

Brothers and Sisters:

Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits 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 firstfruits; then, at his coming, those who belong to Christ.

The word of the Lord.
