1 Thessalonians 4:16

With a shout (en keleusmati).
Note this so-called instrumental use of en. Old word, here only in N.T., from keleuw, to order, command (military command). Christ will come as Conqueror.

With the voice of the archangel (en pwnhi arxaggelou).
Further explanation of keleusmati (command). The only archangel mentioned in N.T. is Michael in Jude 1:9. But note absence of article with both pwnhi and arxaggelou. The reference may be thus indefinite.

With the trump of God (en salpiggi teou).
Trumpet. See same figure in 1 Corinthians 15:52.

The dead in Christ shall rise first (oi nekroi en Xristwi anasthsontai prwton).
{First} here refers plainly to the fact that, so far from the dead in Christ having no share in the Parousia, they will rise before those still alive are changed.
