The Resurrection is the single most important event in world history: Jesus's victory over death and the grave, to attain eternal life. Logically, personal awareness of infinity implies personal realization of infinite time (eternity), which compels resurrection.
All can have victory through Christ. Liberal Christians tend to interpret the Resurrection symbolically, while atheists deny it outright through liberal denial; their arguments are rebutted by Christian apologetics. and the transformational effects of faith in Christ.
Resurrection is the act of coming back from the dead. Jesus' body laid in his tomb until the 3rd day, when Jesus rose again. His body was not like it had been before, being now able to walk through walls and appear suddenly among His disciples. He could also keep Himself from being recognized however He wished. Jesus stayed on the earth after his resurrection until His ascension.
At the Last Judgment all of the dead will also be physically resurrected and judged according to their works.
|“|| Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
— 2 Corinthians 5:9-10
Compare Matthew 7:21-27 and James 2:14-28.
