What happened to all these bodies that came up out of their graves

These bodies were resurrected to establish the reality of the miracle of Christ's own resurrection, and nothing more is said about them in scripture (CP 1Cor 15:3-8). They doubtless died again to be included with all the other Old Testament saints who had died, whose spirits and souls Jesus took to heaven with Him when he ascended on high (CP Eph 4:8-10; He 2:14-15). The significance of the resurrection of those bodies is the prophetic indication that Christ's resurrection guarantees the resurrection of all believers when He comes back to take them all to heaven (CP Jn 11:25-26; 14:1-3, 19 with Isa 26:19; Jn 5:28-29; 1Cor 15:20-23, 51-58; 1Th 4:13-18).
