Hi,

Is there any difference between ANASTATIS NEKRWN (Acts 23:6) and
EKANASTASIS EK NEKRWN (Phil 3.11)? One may be translated as
"resurrection of the dead", and the other as "resurrection from
among the dead". The second implies selection from among the dead.
I noticed that some authors think "resurrection from among the dead"
is equivalent to "resurrection of the just" (in contrast to 
"resurrection of the unjust"), and to "better resurrection" (KREITTNOS
ANASTASEWS), Heb 11.35) which the old saints tried to attain.

Is this conclusion lingistically or grammatically justified?
