The Pharisees believed in an afterlife and the “resurrection of the body.” For Jews, the human body is identified with the person. If a person were to live beyond death, the body must be restored; thus, resurrection of the body. By contrast, the Greeks thought a person is made of body and soul. The soul was immortal but was “trapped” in the body until death when it was freed and lived on. Both the Jewish and Greek solutions to the problem of death and immortality are found in the Bible.
