John 11:21-27, John 6:39-40 (NKJV), 1 Corinthians 15:22-23, Matthew 27:50-53, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 6:9-11, Revelation 14:1-5, Revelation 15:2, Revelation 19:6-9, Revelation 19:11-14, Revelation 20:4-6, Revelation 20:11-15

Assuming that man is eternal and that bodily death is really the temporary separation of the body from the soul, the question then becomes when and where the body and soul are reunited. The answer to this question is inextricably tied to God’s judgment at the end of time. Therefore, we find there are two distinct resurrections – one unto eternal life in the presence of God and one unto eternal condemnation apart from God – based solely on whether a person believes in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and confesses Him as LORD.

Unfortunately, Dr. Strauss’ paper is out of print, but is available as a Microsoft Word document here. Unfortunately, that document is in an older MS-Word format. Furthermore, not everyone has access to MS-Word. I have therefore saved the downloaded document in a more modern version of MS-Word and also saved it as a PDF. Please feel free to download and use either or both of these documents in your own studies, but do please heed and honor its copyright statement.
