The Witch and the Dead Man
      King Saul needed a dead man’s wisdom. So come nightfall, he disguised himself and sneaked out to seek a medium.
      “Whom shall I bring up for you?” the woman asked.
      “Bring up Samuel,” he said.
      So rising out of the earth came Samuel! An old man, wrapped in a robe. He spoke, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” His words were fierce. Saul, full of fear, fell to the ground.
      And no one was more surprised than the medium.
~ 1 Samuel 28:1-25

      The Israelites heard the Moabite raiders quickly approaching. They must hurry to rid themselves of the dead body they were burying. In their haste, they threw the dead man into the nearest tomb. Into Elisha’s tomb. Onto Elisha’s bones.
      What happened next was most unexpected—their dead friend walked back out!
~ 2 Kings 13:20-21

Talk to the Hand

      “Go back and forth, Ezekiel. Look at the dry bones, the very dry bones in this valley. Can they live? Talk to them!”
      So Ezekiel talked, and a rattling noise filled the air, bone connecting to bone. Skin from nowhere inched up to cover them.
      “Speak to the breath, Ezekiel. Tell the four winds to breathe life into these bones!”
      So Ezekiel spoke, and the bones breathed in the wind. And stood on their feet. An exceedingly great army was now formed!
~ Ezekiel 37:1-14

The Dead Live

      “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Jesus cried. Then sent away his very own breath.
      At that very moment, the temple curtain tore; the earth shook; the rocks split.
      And the tombs split apart. The bodies inside? Rose up! They walked out into the city and were seen by many people.
      “Surely he was the Son of God!”
      Surely He is indeed!
~ Matthew 27:51-54
