John 5:21-29
21
And just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so the Son also gives life to anyone He wants to.
22
The Father, in fact, judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son,
23
so that all people will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
24
"I assure you: Anyone who hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment but has passed from death to life.
25
"I assure you: An hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.
26
For just as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted to the Son to have life in Himself.
27
And He has granted Him the right to pass judgment, because He is the Son of Man.
28
Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the graves will hear His voice
29
and come out-- those who have done good things, to the resurrection of life, but those who have done wicked things, to the resurrection of judgment.

33
Therefore, since He has been exalted to the right hand of God and has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, He has poured out what you both see and hear.
34

4
Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in a new way of life.
5
For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death, we will certainly also be in the likeness of His resurrection.
6

7
since a person who has died is freed from sin's claims.
8
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him,
9
because we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death no longer rules over Him.
10
For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God.
11
So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

21
For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also comes through a man.
22
For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.
23
But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; afterward, at His coming, the people of Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:10
He has delivered us from such a terrible death, and He will deliver us; we have placed our hope in Him that He will deliver us again.
2 Corinthians 4:10-13
10
We always carry the death of Jesus in our body, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
11
For we who live are always given over to death because of Jesus, so that Jesus' life may also be revealed in our mortal flesh.
12
So death works in us, but life in you.
