Question

How many ressurections are given in the Bible?

Answer:

Many. 

Elijah resurrected a child in Kings I 17:17-24. His student Elisha did the same Kings II 4:8-37. Then there is the man Elisha caused to rise from the dead after his own death, see Kings II 13:21. Ezekiel resurrected many people in Ezekiel chapter 37 (according to some opinions though this was only a vision - not an actual resurrection).
