Just for fun, I have listed some verses that seem to indicate that there were zombies in the Bible.

Matthew 27:51-53: "And the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth shook, the rocks were split, the tombs were opened, and a number of bodies of the saints who slept the sleep of death rose up—they left the tombs after his resurrection and entered the holy city and appeared to a number of people." Moffatt New Testament

American Standard Version

John 6:53-57: "Believe me," Jesus answered, "unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, you have not Life within you. Those who take my flesh for their food, and drink my blood, have enduring Life; and I will raise them from death at the Last Day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood true drink. Those who take my flesh for their food, and drink my blood, are always in union with me, and I with them." 20th Century New Testament

Isaiah 26:19: "Your dead will live, their corpses will rise, and those who dwell in the dust will shout for joy. Your shadow is a shadow of light, but you will bring down the ghosts into the underworld." Common English Bible

1 Corinthians: 15:51-53 "Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality." English Standard Version

Ezekiel 37:7-10: "And 1 prophesied as I was commanded: and there will be a voice as I prophesied, and behold a shaking, the bones will draw near, bone to his bone. And I saw and behold, upon them sinews and flesh came up, and the skin will draw over them from above: and no spirit in them. And he will say to me, prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Come from the four winds, wind and blow upon these slain, and they shall live. And I prophesied as he commanded me, and the spirit will come upon them and they will live, and they will stand upon their feet, an army great, exceedingly, exceedingly." Julia Smith Bible

Isaiah 13:6-8: "Wail, for the day of the LORD is near; as destruction from the Almighty it will come! Therefore all hands will be feeble, and every man's heart will melt, and they will be dismayed. Pangs and agony will seize them; they will be in anguish like a woman in travail. They will look aghast at one another; their faces will be aflame." Revised Standard Version
