Upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning...


“The Resurrection” by 19th-century Danish artist Carl Heinrich Bloch


Luke 24 (KJV)

1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
8 And they remembered his words,
9 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

Putz, not to split hairs or anything, but according to the last three chapters in the last book in the New Testament (Revelation 20, 21, and 22) everyone, EVERYONE who ever lived, is going to be resurrected, yes, I agree, but John wrote that there will be TWO distinct resurrections with two quite different outcomes.

granted, there is a differance in eternal lives{or going beyond to godhood} and a universal ressurection for all, i guess that would be your two, but a mormon, are you a baptist?????, and loren a catholic can agree on living in a body resurrected after this life and i am not splitting hairs on that concept
