    Matthew Chapter 27:52 And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, Chapter 27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared to many. My question is did these saints remain on the earth and lived more years and died again. Or did they receive glorified bodies and went to Heaven when Jesus did? I know it say's they appeared to many people.

    Hello Ronnie . Just so you know , there are many scholars who believe those two verses , 52+53 to be spurious . If you look this up on line they will explain to you why . I'm not saying that I agree with them or not .

    Ezekiel 37:12-14, I was amazed the other day to see this prophecy.

    Matthew 27:52-53, I didn't find anywhere it clearly states how long.

    Luke 24:51, Mark 16:19, Acts 1:1-11, here is the account recorded of when Jesus was taken up.

    Hopefully these are helpful

    Ronnie, the answer is in:

    Hebrews 11:39 And all these (Old Testament saints), having a good report through faith, received not the PROMISE:

    The Promise is eternal life (CHRIST IN YOU) and that was not available to man until Pentecost.

    The Old saints were waiting in the grave for the resurrection.

    Christ is the resurrection.

    Hebrews 11:40 God having provided something better for us (DEATH passes over us, and ETERNAL LIFE LIVES IN US), that they without us should not be made perfect (the image of Christ).

    The Old saints as well as any that have left this body of flesh, are now in the Holy City, new Jerusalem, made without hands; because they are spirits of just men made perfect.

    Hebrew 1:14 Are they not ministering spirits (the image of Christ) sent forth to minister for them who shall be HEIRS OF SALVATION.

    God Bless You!
