Jesus is “the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep”(v.20). This video about growing apples, from True Food TV, talks about the various stages of growth for the fruit trees. The farmers know that their season is starting when the first crop begins to come in (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWLmEh1HIBw). Christ’s resurrection is the signal to Christians that they too will be resurrected from the dead.
