Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world. - James 1:27

THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD

In the Apostles’ Creed we proclaim that we “believe in the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.” Today’s readings invite us to explore these beliefs.

The passage from Second Maccabees makes it clear that belief in the resurrection of the dead was not born in Christianity, but in a time preceding Jesus’ coming. The martyred brothers proclaim their conviction that God will raise them to new life. No threat of death can bring them to break one of their religious laws. Death of their bodies is no death at all, compared to the spiritual death that would result from transgressing the law.
