Eight resurrections

The Bible records eight individual resurrections other than the Lord Jesus and the saints.
1. Elijah heals the son of the widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 17:17-24).
2. Elisha heals the Shunammite’s son (2 Kings 4:31-37).
3. The Israelite man revived when his body touched the bones of Elisha (2 Kings 13:20-21).
4. Jesus raises the son of the widow of Nain (Luke 7:11-18).
5. Jesus heals Jairus’ daughter (Luke 8:40-42, 49-56).
6. Jesus raises Lazarus (John 11:39-44).
7. Peter healed Tabitha (Acts 9:36-43).
8. Paul revives Eutychus (Acts 20:7-12).
Male and female, Jew and Gentile, young and old, illness and accident, inland and coastland–God’s mercy knows no boundaries.
One interesting note–frequently, the other people were not present at the resurrection. Elijah took the dead son from the arms of his mother and carried him to the upper room. Elisha shut the door on the mother and his servant Gehazi. The Israelite men were frightened for their own survival and distracted from the body of the dead companion. Jesus did not allow the mourners into the house of Jairus as he entered with the parents and three of his disciples. Peter sent the widows out of the upstairs room. I suspect it was necessary to separate from the others in order to guard against the spirit of doubt and unbelief.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Teach us how to pray for the healing of neurologic diseases and how to guard ourselves from doubt and unbelief. Amen.
