So if the dead are already with Jesus where are the dead in Christ rising from? Those who died in faith in the Old Testament are to be raised at the second coming of Christ. Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Hebrews 11:40 God ...

This is a very common mistake. If you only read verses 16 and 17: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ...

Just as those that rose with Christ when he was resurrected, those that rise first after the second coming will rise from their graves: 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matt 27:52-53) ...

The only prophecy specifically stating that Messiah would be "dead" for three days, came from Jesus himself, shortly before his passion, when he began to reveal to his disciples what was to befall him. There are many, many specific prophecies in the OT about the Messiah, but none that state how long he would be in the grave. If memory serves. Doubtless some ...

1. Is there a name for this period? I came accros this site whilst trying to answer this question for myself. I would agree with other posts that there does not appear to be a formal name. Though the Catholic church appear to name it, "Eastertide" and/or "Easter Season". 2. When He wasn't appearing, where and on what was he spending His time? Again, this ...

What an excellent question, as it forced me to really think it through. I think the disconnect is in the very first lines. You make two assumptions that Mormons would not agree with. The first is that without a physical body a spirit is able to be in more than one place at a time. Doctrine and Covenants 131:7-8 7 There is no such thing as ...

The main reason it says "many" rather than all is because some were called to remain as missionaries in the spirit world (See D&C 138:30-31). So beyond those we know are resurrected (such as 'Abraham' who is already exalted - see D&C 132:29), we can only speculate. It is safe to assume given the passages quoted that not all these 'Old Testament' ...

The answers given are correct. I would just add one thought. Given that resurrection can be defined as the "inseparable union of body and spirit" (See Alma 11:45 & D&C 138:17), and that the resurrected body will accord with the respective degree of glory obeyed (See D&C 88:28-32), it is clear that the resurrection itself is the judgement - the ...

The best way to answer this question is to look at what the Book of Mormon says about it. Here are two illustrative quotes: For behold, he surely must die that salvation may come; yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient that he dieth, to bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, that thereby men may be brought into the presence of the Lord. ...

Ressurection is mentioned many times in the Bible. Job also said "And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God" (Job 19:26). According to this article, the Sadducees based their doctrine only from the Torah(Pentateuch), rejecting all Jewish Oral Laws and gave no importance to the writing of the Prophets. In Matthew 22:23-33, ...

No one knows for sure. The Bible doesn't speak directly to this issue, no Pope has spoken ex cathedra about it, and no ecumenical council has addressed it. The "angelic doctor" Thomas Aquinas wrote in his catechism: All will rise in the condition of perfect age, which is of thirty-two or thirty-three years. This is because all who were not yet arrived ...
