Resurrection in the Old Testament

Resurrection isn't a big feature of Old Testament writings.  Over the period of the Old Testament it was a developing feature.  However, in the post easter period, the daily lectionary has included readings from the Old Testament that refer to a future bodily resurrection even if somewhat faintly.  I thought I would list them here.  You may like to read them:

Job 19:21-27
Jonah 2:1-9
Ezekiel 37:1-14
Daniel 12:1-4,13
Isaiah 25:1-9

Another passage that is quoted in Acts is
Psalm 16:9-11

In addition Hebrews 11:17-19 infers a belief in resurrection based on Abraham's actions with Isaac.
