If death is defined as the separation of the soul from the body, the resurrection is evidently a new union of the soul with the boy, a renewed emergence of the fallen and decomposed being. Therefore the body, corrupt and decomposed, will also arise incorrupt. He who made it in the beginning from the dust of the earth certainly does not lack the power to make it rise again-in accordance with the judgment of the Creator-after it has decomposed and returned to the dust from which it was formed.
