Resurrection means rising to life from the dead. In the Christian tradition, it refers specifically to the rising to life of Jesus after his death by crucifixion, signaling the expected resurrection of all who have died. Envisioning the resurrection of the dead at the end of time is a common theme in the Hebrew scriptures. The expectation of resurrection stands in contrast to the expectation of the soul’s reincarnation in many of the Indic religious traditions—Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain.
