According to an interpretation of the Ikhernofret Stela (circa 1850 BC) by Richard H. Wilkinson, Regents Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at the University of Arizona and Director of the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition, Osiris' death and resurrection was celebrated in a 5 day festival known as the "Passion Plays." Osiris is entombed on the second day and remains so until the fourth day. Three days after being entombed, on the fifth day, he is reborn or ‘resurrected’ at dawn.

"Renewed" life for a mythical God (whose 'life' was never perceived to have been 'physical' in a corporeal sense) is synonymous with "resurrection" imho.
