How Many People Did Jesus Raise From the Dead?

According to the Bible, Jesus raised three people from the dead during his earthly ministries: Lazarus, the daughter of Jairus and the son of the widow at Nain. The Bible also says that Jesus rose from the dead himself and performed many miracles.

Jesus is not the only person the Bible claims raised people from the dead. Elijah and Elisha in the Old Testament and Peter and Paul in the New Testament are also said to have raised people from the dead. One man is said to have returned to life after being tossed into Elisha’s tomb and touching the prophet’s shinbone.
