1 Corinthians 15: 20: "But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep." Jesus is the first-fruits of all others who believe in Him. This is an Old Testament image of the first installment of a crop which anticipates and guarantees the ultimate offering of the whole crop. Because Christ rose from the dead, those who are asleep in Christ have a guarantee of their own resurrection.
