A point worth recalling

From Richard Gaffin's new book, By Faith, Not By Sight: Paul and the Order of Salvation, p. 22:
"What is worth recalling at this point, because particularly applicable to Paul, is the observation, made at least as early as Calvin, that in Scripture references to the death alone or to the resurrection alone are synecdochic. That is, to speak of the one always has in view the other in its significance. They are unintelligible apart from each other; each conditions the meaning of the other."
