The Bible reports several resuscitations: in the Hebrew Bible, the widow’s son of Zarepath (1 Kings 17:17–24); in the New Testament, the widow’s son in Nain (Luke 7:11–17), Lazarus (John 11:1–44) and others. Although these are sometimes called “resurrections” or “raisings,” they are in fact resuscitations: a person comes back to terrestrial life and will die again someday. See Jarl Fossum, “Understanding Jesus’ Miracles,” in this issue.
