Anyone ever wonder about the first zombie story?

Matthew 27: 52 (King James Version)

I can't figure out how to cut and paste, but Google The Blue Letter Bible. It's free and easy to use.
Actually that pretty much is the story zombie-wise. It occurs at the moment Jesus dies on the cross.

By the way, I can't seem to re-post to any individual comments. New to this. Suggestions?
HereForTheDay. All I can say is your passage is a promise. Matthew says it happened.

  • Oh dear, now I can never read that portion of the Bible the same way again. I was raised a christian, but agnostic now.

    It's the Epic of Gilgamesh - written 21000BC. - references zombies. =)

    • It's just the one passage. It occurs at the moment Jesus dies on the cross.

  • Son, there are MUCH MUCH older references. Take the Gilgamesh epic. It dates from 1800BC.

    I will pull down the Gates of Hell itself,
    Crush the doorposts and flatten the door,
    And I will let the dead leave
    And let the dead roam the earth
    And they shall eat the living.
