RESURRECTION - The reunion of the soul and body after death which will revitalize and transform the physical body into a spiritual body. Jesus Himself is the first fruits of perfect resurrection; He will never again be subject to death. Because He conquered death by His Resurrection, all will rise again: the righteous to life with Christ, the wicked to judgment. (John 5:28, 29; 1 Cor. 15:35 55.)
The Lord Jesus Christ was risen from the dead by the power of His Divinity. Having risen from the dead, He obtained victory over death and opened to all truly believing on Him the way to the blessed resurrection and life eternal.
