(24.1) Beloved, let us contemplate how the Master continually points out to us the future resurrection will happen, of which He has made the Lord Jesus Christ the firstfruits, by raising (Him) from the dead.
(24.2) Let us see, beloved, the resurrection which is regularly happening.
(24.3) Day and night reveal to us a resurrection. The night falls asleep, and the day wakes up. The day goes away, night comes around.
(24.4) Let us take the fruits: the seed and how in what manner it is produced.
(24.5) The sower went out and cast it to the earth. Each of the seeds wherever it fell to the earth, dry and naked, is dissolved. Then, from this dissolution, the magnificent providence of the Master raises it up, and from one, many grow and produce fruit.
