  1. Resurrection

    Resurrection is the concept of a living being coming back to life after death. It is a religious concept, where it is used in two distinct respects: a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing, or else a belief in a singular "Resurrection of the Dead" event at the end of the world. Most eschatologies believe in a universal resurrection, wherein all people from all history are resurrected. The Resurrection of the Dead is a standard eschatological belief in the Abrahamic religions. In a number of ancient religions, a life-death-rebirth deity is a deity which dies and resurrects. The death and resurrection of Jesus is the central focus of Christianity. The soul is believed by some to be the divine and immortal part of the human being, and some believe it is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected. However, theological debate ensues with regard to what kind of resurrection is factual – either a spiritual resurrection with a spirit body, or a material resurrection with a restored human body. While most Christians believe Jesus' resurrection was in a material body, a very small minority believe it was spiritual.

Examples of resurrection in a Sentence

  1. William White:

    What we do know is that the health of many financial institutions is now under threat, bank profits, needed for capital accumulation, are being reduced by low credit and term spreads. Pension funds and insurance companies are threatened even more. Everywhere, there is the temptation to' gamble for resurrection,' again with unknown consequences. The global economy could now be even more vulnerable than it was in 2007.

  2. Vernon Schutz:

    A resurrection waits in the future of all people, whether saved or lost, kingdom saints or the Body of Christ. 'Marvel not at this for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and come forth they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation' (Jn. 528, 29).

  4. Steven McCoy:

    My family and I are disappointed that we can't be together on Easter Sunday this year, especially after so many absences throughout the year due to everyone's work schedules. Easter Sunday means a lot to us as Easter Sunday is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, however, we are so grateful that everyone is alive and well as we plan to get through this pandemic together -- even if it means we have to be creative during our time separated.

  5. Paul Chambers:

    If Yingluck is impeached this could easily spark snowballing sympathy for Yingluck and a resurrection of pro-Thaksin and pro-democracy sentiment that could give way to the potential beginning of demonstrations, military repression of these demonstrations could increase sympathy for them, and the longer the military remains in power, the less likely it can sustain societal approval for doing so.
