What is the…
resurrection of the dead in the Bible
Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment. —John 5:28-29 NASB
The qualities of the resurrection body will be different from those of the body laid in the grave (1 Corinthians 15:53-54; Philippians 3:21); but its identity will nevertheless be preserved. It will still be the same body (1 Corinthians 15:42-44) which rises again.
The nature of the resurrection body
Christ’s resurrection secures and illustrates that of his people.
Because Christ by covenant is Lord both of the living and the dead (Romans 14:9). This same federal and vital union of the Christian with Christ likewise causes the resurrection of the believer to be similar to, as well as consequent upon, that of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:49; Philippians 3:21; 1 John 3:2).” —Charles Hodge, Princeton Sermons: Outlines of Discourses Doctrinal and Practical
