    Dr. Lim finds that the topic of resurrection as being Exilic and post-Exilic concept. Since Job and Psalm 16 speak of resurrection and are pre-Exilic, then “What does he think about those texts?”

      Thank you for your comment. My point is that the concept of bodily resurrection developed in the exilic and post-exilic period. The dating of Ps 16 and Job is much debated, and even if one dates them to the pre-exilic period they’re not explicit in their statements about a bodily resurrection.
