The resurrection of dead humans is a central doctrine of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It may refer to the literal coming back to life of biologically dead corpses by divine power, or to a purely spiritual resurrection where the 'dead' (human beings who are blind to their spiritual nature and the possibility of salvation) come to Life (in Christianity referred to as eternal Life) by means of spiritual awakening and subsequent transformation to a life of holiness. It is used both with respect to particular individuals or the belief in a general resurrection of humanity.

The idea of resurrection is featured prominently in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scriptures. There are some passages in the Tanakh which at least later have been considered as referring to the resurrection, though more so in the Deuterocanonical books. The concept of resurrection is often associated with the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection of Jesus is elaborated upon throughout the books of the New Testament. Easter is a holiday which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus.
