Thank you, Carl, for your helpful reply, but I still have a question. It's
obvious that 1.18 is partitive (Jesus was one of the dead, and from among
them became the firstborn of the resurrection). But then why would't the
author also use an EK in 1.15, or a simple genitive/ablative in 1.18? The
passage seems to be constructed on such close parallelism, that this
variation still seems striking and probably intentional. Or not?
