QUESTION MARK - © Tamás Gerencser | Dreamstime.comScripture records several individuals other than Messiah Yeshua who rose from the dead:

 

  • Eliyahu [Elijah] raises a widow's son from the dead. (1 Kings 17:17-24)
  • Eliysha [Elisha] raises the Shunammite woman's son from the dead. (2 Kings 4:19-20)
  • A man is raised from the dead when his body touches Eliysha's bones. (2 Kings 13:20-21)
  • Several people rose from the dead when Messiah was crucified and died. (Matthew 27:50-53)
  • Yeshua raises a 12-year-old girl from the dead. (Mark 5:35-42)
  • Yeshua raises a widow's son from the dead. (Luke 7:14-15)
  • Yeshua raises Lazarus from the dead. (John 11:11-45)
  • Peter raises a woman named Tabitha from the dead. (Acts 9:40-41)

 

It should be noted, however, that these were all resuscitations... not resurrections. Scripture tells us that Messiah is firstborn among the dead (Colossians 1:18) so we know that He is the first person ever resurrected and given a glorified body.
