    Your claim is error, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, no resurrection took place as you claim

    There has only been "One" resurrection of the dead that being Jesus Christ the firstfruits, and all men will be resurrected on the future last day at the second coming

    John 12:1KJV
    Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

    You claim no persons soul is currently in "Hell" your claim is wrong

    Scripture clearly teaches the wicked dead are in "Hell" as death and "Hell" deliver up the dead "IN THEM"

    Read it real slow, hell delivered up the dead which were in them:


    Revelation 20:13KJV
    13 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.

    Luke 16:22-25KJV
    22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
    23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,
    and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
    24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
    25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

    Psalm 55:15KJV
    15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

    Your claim is "Error", scripture clearly teaches the "Souls" of the righteous are "Conscious" and communicating with and in the presence of God, as humans are living upon a physical earth

    Revelation 6:9-11KJV
    9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
    10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
    11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    You have proved my statement about Jesus....Jesus was in His physical body while He remained for 40 days teaching.
    The angels had to materialize in human form, Gabriel took on human form...
    In other words, in the physical realm, they needed to be in a physical body to participate in it.

    And back to the fact that Jesus was the first to be resurrected in the flesh and after His ascension He took on His glorified body..

    This is how it can be claimed that He overcame the curse of sin and death.

    It's not possible T7t7 to communicate meaning if one takes what is meant as metaphorical and interprets it as literal.
