There is a much simpler argument than the one presented by the OP.

According to Deuteronomy 28, the God of the Torah, the God of the living, rewards and punishes people for good and for evil only in this world; not in any after-death metaphysical world.

Thus, the Christian doctrine of an after-death metaphysical existence of rewards and punishments is a direct, specific and flagrant denial and violation of Deuteronomy 28; and, in fact, an expression of a belief not in the God of the living, the God of the Torah; but, rather, the 'god of the dead' that exercises his 'power' only in the after-death world.

Thus, for evil people to die without having received the punishment for their evil, or for good people to die without being rewarded for their good, results in a logical problem: where do they then received those rewards and punishments?

In this world, but in future lives.

Thus, the Torah implies that the Doctrine of "resurrection"--that it, that "the dead are raised"--is a Doctrine of 'Rebirth', as specifically stated by Jesus in his reply to the Sadducees.
