Romans 8:23; Romans 11:16; Romans 16:5
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.
