Belief in Resurrection

What is the source of 13 Rambam’s principals of belief? Mishne-Torah don’t have those 13. The one of those 13 is to believe in future resurrection. Is it true that RaSaG didn’t believe in resurrection (wikipedia says)?

Answer:

The source is in the Rambam’s commentary to the mishnayot, in the beginning of the final chapter of Tractate Sanhedrin.

While the exact nature of the resurrection is a matter of debate and ultimately remains an unknown, the actual belief in resurrection is undisputed by all Torah sages, Rasag included, as it is clearly stated in the Oral Law numerous times [see above chapter in Talmud Bavli], and referred to in the Written Law as well.
