Resurrection vs. Raising

People don’t often get that “resurrection” and “raised from the dead” are not technically the same thing.

People who are raised from the dead will still die one day – Jairus daughter, Lazarus, the boy coming out of the village.

People who are resurrected receive a new body that is immortal, and will never die.

Jesus was the first resurrection, and unless I misunderstand Scripture, everyone else is still waiting for the resurrection.

Resurrection is what I look forward to!
