      I wasn't very clear in my post. Hebrews 11:35 refers to women who received some one raised from the dead and to "others" who endured torturing and did not accept deliverance so they could obtain a better resurrection. The first part could apply to 1 Kings 17:17-24 (a miracle of Elijah) and 2 Kings 4:18-37) miracle of Elisha. The latter part of the verse could apply to the story in 2 Maccabees 7:1-41 where a mother and her 7 sons were offered the chance to eat pork and escape death but they refused because of the hope of a better resurrection.
