John 5.29 indicates two kinds of resurrections, one of life and the other of judgment. In all cases in the Bible, resurrection meant the body came back to life, as opposed to when Samuel spoke to Saul from the grave. Ones like Lazarus and the many saints in Matthew 27.52-53 resurrected with their same bodies only to die at a later time. In other words, both Jesus and Lazarus were recognizable, and did not receive some foreign looking body.

The comment was made that a soul can not suffer, only a body can. All men (and women, of course) live, die, will be resurrected, and then face judgment in their body. (Hebrew 9.27) Those who believe will be judged by the Lord before the millennial kingdom, and those who do not believe will be judged at the great white throne after the kingdom.
The resurrected unbeliever will be thrown into the lake of fire to die a second time , a physical death. After that they will cease to exist. Souls cannot burn. Souls cannot suffer from fire, a soul without a body cannot experience any physical pain. Eternal torment teaches that souls are tormented forever in a lake of fire. The problem is how can a soul be tormented by fire? It can't.
