John 5:21. Raising the dead.

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.

Raising the dead was not even common as an attribute of God the Father and many think that this is an eschatological reference. The instances of the dead being raised in Scripture are very few and many of them are at the hand of Jesus. In the last days Jesus will raise some to eternal life but some will be raised to eternal punishment. Today the offer of salvation is made to all men and women.
