Thread: Resurrection In the Old Testament

    Resurrection In the Old Testament

    Contrary to the notion of resurrection being something "new" Jesus "invented", resurrection is mentioned and done many times in the Old Testament--literally and, if you count rebuilding of temples as figurative of resurrection, then, even more.

    1. Elijah resurrected the son of Zarephath's widow (1 Kings 17:17-24)
    2. Elisha resurrected the son of a Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4:35)
    3. A dead man during his burial come's back to life after his body touched the bones of Elisha (2 Kings 13:21)

    Where are the accusations of necromancy against Elijah or Elisha? If John the Baptist carried the mantle of Elijah, and if his and Jesus' mantles were somehow related, why would it be any surprise should Jesus raise anyone from the dead? Or were the Pharisees basing their beliefs on an entirely different set of works other than the Tanakh?
