Resurrection is the concept of coming back to life afterdeath. In a number of ancient religions, a dying and rising god is a deity which dies and resurrects. The death and resurrection of Jesus, an example of resurrection, is the central focus of Christianity.
As a religious concept, 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 singularresurrection of the dead at theend of the world. The resurrection of the dead is a standard belief in the Abrahamic religions.
Some believe the soul is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected.
