As part of a typological study, the question came up as to whether St John The Forerunner had participated in the resurrection of anyone else from the dead. Does this type of story occur in any Orthodox (or even Orthodox-adjacent) narratives, particularly in the early Church? Thanks!

Did St John The Forerunner raise anybody from the dead, according to Orthodox or apocryphal sources?
Ok. Thank you. Sorry, I dont know anything about this. I never heard that St John Forerunner raised someone from dead. Lots to learn.

Sorry, misunderstood St. John the forerunner with John the apostle.

I don't think so , though do you mean in his lifetime only or also later, in connection with his relics?

Voragine's The Golden Legend -medieval European and therefore doesn't fit your criterion of "Orthodox adjacent"- mentions dead being raised via St. John's relics; if memory serves a much older (post-Nicene) Syrian text discusses his relics as well, but I don't recall the particulars.
