First Corinthians 15:35
But someone will say, "How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?"
First Corinthians 15:36-37
You fool! That which you sow does not come to life unless it dies; and that which you sow, you do not sow the body which is to be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body just as He wished, and to each of the seeds a body of its own.
First Corinthians 15:32
If from human motives I fought with wild beasts, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.
Ask yourself.... before you are born, what are you?

The resurrection of the dead as spoken of in the Tanakh is an awakening. It is physical though in the New Testament... I guess for purposes of drawing attention away from the truth and focusing the attention on a future event and/or a false notion.

I disagree with your conclusion. Resurrecting the dead means bringing someone back who has died. Before you're born you don't exist, at the very least not physically. Giving birth is creating a life, not resurrecting one - big difference.
Just my .02 cents.

Being dead is different from being not alive. You have to be alive to die. Things that were never alive aren't dead, just not alive. To be born is to become alive, and to die is to become dead.

Yes, we are alive. There are people living today. When you die you are no longer alive, if that is what you mean.
