In Revelation we read about several resurrections. We read the "bad" people need to sleep for another 1000 years. The good people will rule with Jesus.
It's often said those good people are Christians.
If so that automaticly means Christians will die. (without death no resurrection)
I would count the great OT names like Abraham, Job, Daniel, etc to the good people. But are they Christians?
Or is the whole "only Christians" a distortion of the truth?
- I can accept the 1000 years are not literal but just mean "a long time"
- I also accept spiritual components.
But even if the 1000 years only last 1 year and it's 100% spiritual there is a diffence as shown in the various resurrections. Jesus who never was spiritual dead was the first fruit of those resurrections. So Jesus' literal/bodily resurrection is extremely closely linked to the other resurrections. So for me answers like "It's all spiritual" are just ways of saying "I don't know" or "I don't want spend the time figuring it out."
Simply because patterns (literal vs spiritual) are parallel story lines. Not linear ones.
