  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. Sir Martin Archer Shee:

    Dug from the tomb of taste-refining time, Each form is exquisite, each block sublime. Or good, or bad,-disfigur'd, or deprav'd,- All art, is at its resurrection sav'd All crown'd with glory in the critic's heav'n, Each merit magnified, each fault forgiven.

  2. Saadi:

    From the Gulistan Be not over much angry with thy slave; Treat him not unjustly, and pain not his feelings. True, thou mayst have bought him for ten direms; But 'twas not by thy power that he was created. There is a tradition of the Prophet--peace be upon him!--that on the day of the resurrection the greatest grief will be when the pious slave is carried to Paradise, and his worthless master is borne away to Hell.

  3. Bob Wilkin:

    Because of Christ's resurrection--and His guarantee that He will resurrect all who believe in Him--we are the most fortunate, the most blest people on the planet Our faith is effective, we are not in our sins, our departed loved ones are with the Lord, and the labor we do for Him is not in vain.

  4. Russian President Vladimir Putin:

    There is no doubt that we will properly overcome the challenges that have confronted us, our people often say: God helps those who help themselves. And that is how were acting. But on this radiant holiday of Christs resurrection, I would still like to say: All will be well, with Gods help.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Jesus Christ (the saviour of the whole world) is risen from the dead/grave to die no more. So, may you experience the power of his resurrection in all its ramifications. Happy Easter celebration, anyway. ~Emeasoba George
