He was given over to death because of our transgressions and was raised for the sake of our justification. Therefore now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen,

“Death has been swallowed up in victory.”

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
