1 Thessalonians 4:14

14 Since we believe that Jesus died and rose, so we also believe that God will bring with him those who have died in Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 4:14 In-Context

12 That way you'll behave appropriately toward outsiders, and you won't be in need.
13 Brothers and sisters, we want you to know about people who have died so that you won't mourn like others who don't have any hope.
14 Since we believe that Jesus died and rose, so we also believe that God will bring with him those who have died in Jesus.
15 What we are saying is a message from the Lord: we who are alive and still around at the Lord's coming definitely won't go ahead of those who have died.
16 This is because the Lord himself will come down from heaven with the signal of a shout by the head angel and a blast on God's trumpet. First, those who are dead in Christ will rise.
