For time would fail me to tell of [those who] were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life…” This is a continuation of the series on each story contained in verse 32. Rev. Zimmerman talks about the Old Testament belief in the resurrection, the stories of martyrs in 2 Maccabees 6 and 7, and what authority is given to the Apocrypha as it is alluded to in the New Testament.
