Who Came Back To Life?

Who came back t o life after being dead?    

In the New Tesrtament of the Bible, there were some people who came back to life after dying. The most well known is probably that of Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha, When he was ill, word was sent o Jesus to come, But Jesus did not go immediately after stating that the sickness would not end in death, but will bring Glory to God. When he finally arrived in their home, Lazarus had been entombed for 4 days. Jesus said to her ( Martha) in John 11:25,26 , “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe  this?

" John 11-38-45   Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said. “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.” 40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” 41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

    Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”  45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him.  

  There were other instances of resurrection, the only son of a widow( Luke7 ), and the young daughter of a synagogue ruler( Matt 9).  At the death of Jesus too, in Matthew 27:52-53, "and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.  They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and [ a] went into the holy city and appeared to many people." 

But,  all of them did die again, only the resurrection of Jesus himself is permanent , he will never die  again. This is the 'First Fruit", a model for those who believe in Him, that they will rise after death, to live on always.

  25 耶 穌 對 他 說 : 復 活 在 我 , 生 命 也 在 我 。 信 我 的 人 雖 然 死 了 , 也 必 復 活 ,  26 凡 活 著 信 我 的 人 必 永 遠 不 死 。 你 信 這 話 麼
