Recently in Doctrine class we covered the principle of "Resurrection" via 1Cor 15. In that passage Paul says "But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive."
Who does the second "all" refer to? The first "all" seems to mean ALL mankind (as everyone inherits our first parents death). It doesn't seem the second "all" can mean ALL mankind or either the "made alive" is something other than regeneration.

Paul makes a similar argument in Romans 5 when he says, "Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
