"These words might also be applied to a
spiritual resurrection, as were the former, (and so, coming out
of graves meaneth, Ezek. xxxvii. 12,) the words of the verse
following being only translated and glossed thus: and they shall
come forth, they that do good, after they hear his voice in the
gospel, to the resurrection of life; and they that do evil,
after they hear the gospel, unto the resurrection of damnation.
But they are more generally understood of the general
resurrection,' &c." (Harm. Evang. Part iii. John v. 28.)
"The Rebbe often quotes the Zohar to the effect that the Resurrection will take place 40 years after the advent of Mashiach." (See Igros Kodesh, Vol. II, p. 75; Sefer HaSichos 5752, Vol. I, p. 274. However, there are also other references in the sichos (e.g., Likkutei Sichos, Vol. XXVII, p. 206; Sefer HaSichos 5733, Shabbos Parshas Balak, footnote 3)
"After this it was noised abroad that Mr. Valiant-for-truth was taken with a summons by the same post as the other, and had this for a token that the summons was true, "That his pitcher was broken at the fountain."
Eccl. 12:6. When he understood it, he called for his friends, and told them of it. Then said he, I am going to my Father's; and though with great difficulty I have got hither, yet now I do not repent me of all the trouble I have been at to arrive where I am. My sword I give to him that shall succeed me in my pilgrimage, and my courage and skill to him that can get it. My marks and scars I carry with me, to be a witness for me that I have fought His battles who will now be my rewarder. When the day that he must go hence was come, many accompanied him to the river-side, into which as he went, he said, "Death, where is thy sting?" And as he went down deeper, he said, "Grave, where is thy victory?" 1 Cor. 15:55. So he passed over, and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side." (The Pilgrim's Progress)
"Our union with God -- his presence with us, in which our aloneness is banished and the meaning and full purpose of human existence is realized -- consists chiefly in a conversational relationship with God while we are each consistently and deeply engaged as his friend and colaborer in the affairs of the kingdom of the heavens.' (Hearing God, p. 56)
|These tales, which relate to the monarchs of old, |
In volumes of elegant verse I have told.
The men of renown, and of prowess and fame,
Whose deeds are recorded herein name by name,
Time swept them aside, and death stilled heart and brain-,
But here in my verses they live once again.
Like Jesus, whose voice called the dead back to life,
I've wakened dead heroes of struggle and strife.
At long last each noble construction decays,
Assaulted by wind and the sun's scorching rays.
But I have erected a Palace of Rhyme:
No blast shall o'erthrow it, nor passage of time.'
Ferdowsi (940 - 1020 A.D.).
Originally in nasta'liq characters on a marble tablet on the Mausoleum erected at Tus. These lines are translated by Mr. Sharp
The day of resurrection! |
Earth, tell it out abroad;
The passover of gladness,
The passover of God.
From death to life eternal,
From this world to the sky,
Our Christ hath brought us over
With hymns of victory.
Our hearts be pure from evil,
That we may see aright
The Lord in rays eternal
Of resurrection light,
And, list'ning to His accents,
May hear, so calm and plain
His own "All hail!" and, hearing,
May raise the victor strain.
Now let the heav'ns be joyful,
Let earth her song begin,
Let the round world keep triumph
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend;
For Christ the Lord has risen --
Our Joy that has no end.
... John of Damascus
