For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.
For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.
So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, Adam, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man, Christ.
There is a nice symmetry in this: Death initially came by a man, and resurrection from death came by a man.
For as by man came death, so by man there is a coming back from the dead.
For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being;
For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
