How Many Were Raised From The Dead? Follow Up

Q. Re: How Many Were Raised From The Dead? I noticed that you didn’t include the dead who came out of their graves when Jesus died (Matthew 27:52-53) in your answer to this question. What about them? Did they go back to the grave?

A. The nine people I listed all subsequently died again, which is what typically happens when someone is raised from the dead. I believe the people resurrected in Matt. 27:52-53 never died again but went to heaven when the Lord ascended (Ephes. 4:7-8). In my opinion this puts them in a unique category, similar to the resurrection at the end of the age.
