Resurrection of Believers

One of the first examples we see of the resurrection of believers is that of Moses and Elijah appearing in glorious splendor to Jesus, Peter, James and John. As Moses and Elijah spoke with Jesus about His departure, Jesus is transformed before the disciple’s very eyes. Moses and Elijah have obviously received their resurrection bodies and would therefore be counted among the first of the resurrection.
