Jesus: The "Firstfruit"?

1 Corinthians 15:20 says that, "Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep." Does this imply that Jesus lived recently, since shortly after the firstfruits the other fruit are born?

This is of course

This is of course interpreted lots of ways. Says to me the "truth" can't die. Like saying the "laws will never change", like thermodynamics says today .... Umm, I live today, me christ as you, just as for you not dead and mentally blind, who reject all superstition and dogma, those of you "awake" and who understand the "oneness", as you are the christ too .... To know is "gnosis",  and has NO "faith" ..... blah blah 

   Yeah, the agreed "gnosis" definition is clumsy ... Aha whatever. We are GOD !!!

I read it as: implying that

I read it as: implying that christ (being dead) has risen from that death (soul) and that act is being a reward or pay off (firstfruit) to those who have fallen asleep(died)

I think Renee is more

I think Renee is more correct regarding that verse , after reading,

Rook probably knows. Mythology is pretty interesting, a look into our past.
