In Short


The first sin brought death into the world for all people.

“God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.'”
Genesis 2:16-17

“The wages of the righteous is life,
but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death.”
Proverbs 10:16

“Sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.”
Romans 5:12


Jesus paid for all sin and God raised him from the dead to prove it.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.'”
John 11:25

“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life because of our justification.”
Romans 4:25

“‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:55-57


Because Jesus rose from the dead we, too, will rise from the dead.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

“Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
1 Corinthians 15:20-22
