It has often been said that the Ancient Scriptures of IsraEl don’t really speak of the hope of a resurrection of the dead. However, in each place where the Hebrew word mequim is found, it is translated as anastasia (resurrection) in the Greek Septuagint text.
For example, we find anastasia (resurrection) first used in the song that HanNah sang to God after she had offered her young son SamuEl to serve at God’s Sacred Tent (at First Samuel 2:8). This is particularly interesting, for while most would consider her words there to be just an unimportant song; It was truly an inspired and important prophecy, because this is the first place where the word resurrection (anastasia) is found in the Bible.
