1 Corinthians 15:20–26
2:25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
3:2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
3:3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'”
3:4 “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman.
3:5 “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
15:20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
15:21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.
15:22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
15:23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.
15:24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.
15:25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
15:26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
