Dead People Walking Around Jerusalem

Why were dead people walking about in the streets of Jerusalem?  “The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;  53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.”  (Matt 27:52-53, NAU)  Because of Jesus the answer is in Heb.11:13—“All these died in faith, without receiving the promises, but having seen them and having welcomed them from a distance, and having confessed that they were strangers and exiles on the earth.”  They were awaiting their resurrection.  They had already received the promise of resurrection, they had already lifted their eyes and not even death could erase what they had seen.
