When Are Old Testament Saints Resurrected?

Q. I have another question about the sequence of the first resurrection. When will the old testament saints be resurrected? Is that before or after the tribulation saints?

A.  I think Old Testament saints will be resurrected at the same time as tribulation martyrs, which is right after the 2nd Coming (Rev. 20:4). The closest time we’re given is in Daniel 12:1-2 where it’s placed it at the time of the Great Tribulation, and most people lean toward it happening at the end, when the Lord returns.  In my opinion there wouldn’t be any point in resurrecting Old Testament believers right into the time and place of the worst judgments the world ever has or ever will see.
