Resurrection and then Justification

Whenever Paul speaks of justification, he always prefaces that with the resurrection of the dead, why? In Isaiah, verse 10 says, "When thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand." It is verse 11, the following verse, the writer speaks of "the just my servant who shall justify many." Paul is simply allowing Isaiah to guide him in his theology and following Isaiah's order exactly.
