) (from Aeschylus
1. a raising up, rising (e. g. from a seat): Luke 2:34 (opposed to πτῶσις; the meaning is 'It lies (or 'is set' A. V.) like a stone, which some will lay hold of in order to climb; but others will strike against it and fall').

a. that of Christ: Acts 1:22; Acts 2:31; Acts 4:33; Romans 6:5; Philippians 3:10; 1 Peter 3:21; with the addition of νεκρῶν, Romans 1:4 (a generic phrase: the resurrection-of-the-dead, although it has come to pass as yet only in the case of Christ alone; cf. Acts 17:32; Winer's Grammar, § 30, 2 a. at the end); ἐκ νεκρῶν, 1 Peter 1:3.
b. that of all men at the end of the present age. This is called simply ἀνάστασις or ἡ ἀνάστασις, Matthew 22:23, (28), 30; Mark 12:18, 23 Luke 20:27, 33, 36; John 11:24; Acts 17:18; Acts 23:8; 2 Timothy 2:18; by metonymy equivalent to the author of resurrection, John 11:25; with the addition of ἡ ἐκ νεκρῶν, Luke 20:35; Acts 4:2; or simply of τῶν νεκρῶν (on the distinction which some (e. g. Van Hengel on Romans 1:4; Van Hengel and Lightfoot on Philippians 3:11; Cremer, under the word) would make between these phrases, see Winers Grammar, 123 (117); Buttmann, 89 (78)), Matthew 22:31; Acts 17:32; Acts 23:6; Acts 24:15 (Rec.), ; ; 1 Corinthians 15:12f, 21, 42; Hebrews 6:2. ἀνάστασις ζωῆς resurrection to life (ἀνάστασις εἰς ζωήν, 2 Macc. 7:14 (cf. Daniel 12:2)), and ἀνάστασις τῆς κρίσεως resurrection to judgment, John 5:29 (on the genitives cf.

Winer's Grammar, 460 (429))). ἡ ἀνάστασις ἡ πρώτη in Revelation 20:5f will be that of true Christians, and at the end of a thousand years will be followed by a second resurrection, that of all the rest of mankind, Revelation 20:12ff On the question whether and in what sense Paul also believed in two resurrections, separated from each other by a definite space of time, cf. Grimm in the Zeitschr. für wissenschaftl. Theol., 1873, p. 388f.
