Isaiah is just one of the prophets to foresee the day of resurrection and the Kingdom of Heaven (Isa 25.6-9). Yet, even those well-schooled in the resurrection promises nevertheless find the news of Christ’s resurrection bewildering at first, like the women at the tomb (Mk 16.1-8). Others, like a young Pharisee from Tarsus named Saul, find the claims blasphemous, yet when confronted by the fact, everything changes, including his name, and his message, for the resurrection is true, and “of first importance.” (1 Cor 15.1-11)
