The Order of Resurrection

20 But now Christ (A)has been raised from the dead, the (B)first fruits of those who (C)are asleep. 21 For since (D)by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For (E)as in Adam all die, so also in [a]Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ (F)the first fruits, after that (G)those who are Christ’s at (H)His coming, 24 then comes the end, when He hands over (I)the kingdom to the (J)God and Father, when He has abolished (K)all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign (L)until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be (M)abolished is death. 27 For (N)He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “(O)All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him. 28 When (P)all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that (Q)God may be all in all.
