ALL shall rise from the dead

I'm wondering if the ""all"" in Romans chapter 5 is talking about the same ""all"" in 1st Corinthians chapter 15?

1 Corinthians 15
20But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

compared with

Romans 5:18
18Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.

So I'm thinking that Christ's resurrection made the resurrection of mankind possible. But there is a curve ball in all this. Only those who are united with Christ will be raised in glory. Whereas the others will be raised to condemnation.

We see that both the just and unjust will be raised from the dead.

Acts 24:15
I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust.
