EPISTLE. 1 Cor. xv. 51, 57. Brethren: Behold I tell you a mystery; We shall indeed all rise again; but we shall not all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise again incorruptible: and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption : and this mortal must put on immortality. And when this mortal bath put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written; Death is swallowed up in victory. Ograve, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting? Now the sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God who hatta given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

GOSPEL. John v. 25, 29. At that time; Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews : Amen, amen I say unto you, that the hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that bear shall live. For as the Father bath life in himself; so he hath given to the Son also to have life in himself: and he hath given him power to do judgınent, because he is the Son of Man. Wonder not at this, for the hour cometh
