Resurrection, Summary:

(1) The resurrection of the dead was believed by the patriarchs Genesis 22:5; Hebrews 11:19; Job 19:25-27 and revealed through the prophets ; Isaiah 26:19; Daniel 12:2,13; Hosea 13:14 and miracles of the dead restored to life are recorded in the O.T. ; 2 Kings 4:32-35; 13:21.

(2) Jesus Christ restored life to the dead Matthew 9:25; Luke 7:12-15; John 11:43,44 and predicted His own resurrection; John 10:18; Luke 24:1-8.

(3) A resurrection of bodies followed the resurrection of Christ Matthew 27:52,53 and the apostles raised the dead ; Acts 9:36-41; 20:9,10.

(4) Two resurrections are yet future, which are inclusive of “all that are in the graves” John 5:28. These are distinguished as “of life” ; 1 Corinthians 15:22,23; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelation 20:4 and “of judgment”; John 5:28,29; Revelation 20:11-13. They are separated by a period of one thousand years Revelation 20:5. The “first resurrection,” that “unto life,” will occur at the second coming of Christ 1 Corinthians 15:23 the saints of the O.T. and church ages meeting Him in the air 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 while the martyrs of the tribulation, who also have part in the resurrection Revelation 20:4 are raised at the end of the great tribulation.

(5) The mortal body will be related to the resurrection body as grain sown is related to the harvest 1 Corinthians 15:37,38 that body will be incorruptible, glorious, powerful, and spiritual 1 Corinthians 15:42-44,49.

(6) The bodies of living believers will, at the same time, be instantaneously changed 1 Corinthians 15:50-53; Philippians 3:20,21. This “change” of the living, and resurrection of the dead in Christ, is called the “redemption of the body”; Romans 8:23; Ephesians 1:13,14.

(7) After the thousand years the “resurrection unto judgment” John 5:29 occurs. The resurrection-body of the wicked dead is not described. They are judged according to their works, and cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:7-15.
