Who will be resurrected?
“There is going to be a resurrection of both the righeous and the unrighteous.”(Acts 24:15) The righteous will include faithful men and women such as Noah, Abraham, and Sarah. The unrighteous will include those who failed to meed God’s standards because of not having the opportunity to learn and follow them.
Where will the resurrected ones be?
Some wll be resurrected to immortal spirit life in the heavens to rule with Christ as kings and priests over the earth. (Revelation 5:9, 10) Most, though, will be brought back to life on the earth. They will enjoy everlasting life in an earthly paradise.—Luke 23:39-43.
When will the resurrection take place?
After the wicked are removed from the earth. The Bible indicates a more extensive resurrection will occur during the thousand-year reign of Jesus, during which the earth will be transformed into a paradise.—Revelation 20:6.
If Jesus is God, as some churches teach, who resurrected Jesus?
Jesus is not God—whose name is Jehovah. But he is the Son of God. Jehovah resurrected Jesus from the dead. (Romans 10:9) One Bible scholar comments: “It is unthinkable that anyone —even Christ—could raise himself.”
