John 20:1  The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
John 20:2  Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
I Cor. 15:20  But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
I Cor. 15:21  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
I Cor. 15:22  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
