The Three Resurrections
I Corinthians 15:3,4
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures:
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according
to the scriptures.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ.
I Corinthians 15:22,23
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterwards they
that are Christ's at his coming.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years
were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on
such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God
and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain
together until now.
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of
the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the
adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
