Hi blasater,

I’m not sure if I understand what you meant...So what does resurrection of the dead mean in Jewish teaching? Besides Lazarus being resurrected as one of the *Miracles* Jesus did, my understanding is Elijah and Enoch were taken alive not dead....

What I was trying to say is that both Elijah and Elisha raised people from the dead. That did not mean they had Jesus type power (diety). Nor do the people who have been raised from the dead before Jesus by Elisha, Elijah or even those by Jesus and the apostles, enjoy any special status (diety). And at the end of the ages, the dead believers in G-d will rise. So resurrection is not a unique event right? So even Jesus resurrection is not a unique thing and G-d never once mentions blief in a ressurected person as a requirement or commandment. Does that make more sense?

Shalom

1 KINGS 17:17-24: Elijah raises a child from the dead.

2 KINGS 4:17-37: Elisha raises from the dead the son of a “Shunammite woman”.
