Now if Christ be preached that He rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased Him, and to every seed his own body.

-I Corinthians 15:12, 35-38

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

-Revelation 20:12-13

3. The resurrection is physical (of the body), not spiritual (of the soul).

But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

-Romans 8:11,23

For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:
Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

-Job 19:25-27

4. The resurrection includes both the righteous and the wicked.

And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

-Acts 24:15

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice,
And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

-John 5:28-29


How do the corresponding texts refute the teaching of the Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh-Day Adventists that only the righteous shall arise in the resurrection?
