27:52And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
27:53And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
5:28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
5:29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
6:39And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
2:25For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
2:26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
2:27Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
2:28Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
2:29Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
2:30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
2:31He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
2:32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
2:33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
2:34For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
13:34And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
8:11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
8:22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
8:23And 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.
15:1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
15:2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
15:3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
15:4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
15:5And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
15:6After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
15:7After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
15:8And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
15:9For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
15:10But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
15:11Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
15:12Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
15:13But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
15:14And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15:15Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
15:16For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
15:17And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
15:18Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
15:19If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
15:20But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
15:21For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
15:22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
15:23But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
15:24Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
15:25For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
15:26The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
15:27For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
15:28And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
15:29Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
15:30And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
15:31I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
15:32If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
15:33Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
15:34Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
15:35But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
15:36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
15:37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
15:38But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
15:39All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
15:40There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
15:41There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
15:42So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
15:43It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
15:44It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
15:45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
15:46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
15:47The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
15:48As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
15:49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
15:50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
15:51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
15:52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
15:53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
15:54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
15:55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
15:56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
15:57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
3:20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
3:21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
4:14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
4:15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
4:16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
