Exploring the Biblical Accounts of Resurrections From the Dead

Revelation 2:10   Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

There are three resurrections found in the Old Testament:

  • Resurrection of the widow’s son in Zarephath (1 Kings 17:17-22)

  • Resurrection of the Shunammite widow’s son (2 Kings 4:18-37)

  • Resurrection of the unknown man thrown into Elisha’s grave (2 Kings 13:20-21).

Jesus raised three persons, plus Himself:

  • Resurrection of Lazarus (John 11:39-44)

  • Resurrection of Jairus’ daughter (Mark 5:35-43)

  • Resurrection of the widow’s son in Nain (Luke 7:14).

Other resurrections would include:

  • Resurrection of Lazarus (John 11:38–44; 12:1, 9, 17)

  • Resurrection of unknown saints during the crucifixion (Matt 27:52–53)

  • Resurrection of Christ (Matt 28:1-6; Acts 4:10; 13:30;1 Corinthians 15:1-8)

  • Resurrection of Tabitha/Dorcas (Acts 9:36–42)

  • Resurrection of Eutychus (Acts 20:7–12)

  • Resurrection of the Church (i.e., Rapture, 1 Thess 4:13-18; 1 Cor 15:23)

  • Resurrection of the Two Witnesses (Rev 11:7–11)

  • Resurrection of OT Saints and Martyrs (Revelation 20:4)

  • Resurrection of the Wicked (Revelation 20:5)

While not specifically stated, I will include the following as great possibilities.

  • Resurrection of Jonah from the fish (Jonah 1–2)

  • Resurrection of Paul in the city of Lystra (Acts 14:19–20)

  • Resurrection of the Antichrist by the False Prophet (Rev 13:3)
