1 Christ our passover is sacrificed for us :
therefore let us keep the feast;
2 Not with the old leaven,
nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness :
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5.7b, 8
3 Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more :
death hath no more dominion over him.
4 For in that he died, he died unto sin once :
but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
5 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin :
but alive unto God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
6 Christ is risen from the dead :
and become the first fruits of them that slept.
7 For since by man came death :
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
8 For as in Adam all die :
even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15.20-22
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :
and to the Holy Ghost;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :
world without end. Amen.
