what resurrection is this
« on: April 27, 2010, 11:53:16 PM »

Hello to all and i hope everyone is having a blessed day today. My question is regarding Matt.27:52,53. What resurrection is this? Who are these people that are also resurrected? Are they also at the right hand of the father? Why were they excluded from being resurrected with everyone else at Christs second coming? Thanks again in advance for all your answers.

Hi Wisdom,

Here are a couple of emails where Ray addressed this question.,658.0.html

You have to learn to read more carefully. Notice it says: "And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves AFTER HIS [Jesus'] resurrection..."

These were saints that had recently died, and who could be easily recognized by many, hence proving that God can not only raise His Son from the dead, but anyone He wishes.  These saints were resurrected back to mortal life (they were not "vivified" as is used in reference to life of immortality). They died again as did Lazarus and all others that were resurrected from the dead by Jesus and the apostles. And no, this this not contradict Heb. 11:39 or any other Scripture of the Bible.,86.0.html

Those resurrected at the time of Christ's crucifixion were saints well-known in Jerusalem. Jesus had publically stated that He is the resurrection. The resurrection of these saints was proof of His statement.

These saints were resurrected physically, so that they could be seen by those who knew them and who knew that they had died. They were not given immortal bodies at that time, and hence, just like Lazarus, died again. In the resurrection to eonian life, the saints are given SPIRITUAL bodies and immortality, not physical life (I Cor.15: 44).

God be with you,
