1. Introduction

The Bible presents a great variety of concepts. Some of these deal with philosophies about life, while others are about concepts beyond our present lives. With the current scientific focus in Western life, often the most popular aspects of the Bible are those that fit in with that school of thought. An example of this would be to see the Bible as a starting point for developing a moral code. However, the Bible contains concepts which have much further reaching consequences. One of these is the “Resurrection” that it details.

This doctrine claims that people can achieve life after they die. As an example, Jesus said:

John 11:25.: ... "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. NKJV

This is a very significant claim, as in comparison it begins to trivialise many of the issues faced in life.
