LESSON 19

DEATH

The Bible says, "And just as it is destined that each person dies only once and after that comes judgment" (Heb. 9:27). For the Christian there is no fear in death because it is only a passing from this earthly life into the more glorious heavenly life. But for the unbeliever it means judgment, hell, and everlasting punishment. We need to understand clearly that there are two deaths­one for the body, and one for the soul. The Christian soul will never die for he has received eternal life - but his body will die. However, even our bodies will be restored to us in a new form. This is what Jesus meant when He said, "Those that believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again. They are given eternal life for believing in me and will never perish" (John 11:25, 26).

  3. At the time of death of a believing loved one the Christian can say, "Blessed be the name of the Lord". Why can we praise God at such a time? Job 1:21

........................................................................................................................................................

10. We are told that though others sorrow over loved ones who die, Christians should not sorrow in the same way over believing loved ones who die. The reason that our sorrow is not the same and we are not in despair, is because we have a great hope. Tell briefly what the Christian's hope is over a loved one who has "fallen asleep" in death. 1Thess. 4:13, 14)

  1. When our body dies and is buried, it is compared to the planting of a seed. The seed must die in order that a new plant may come up. Even so, our body must die, but when Christ returns, it will be raised up a new and different body (1 Cor. 15:35-44). From verses 42-44, please state four ways in which the body is sown and four ways in which it will be raised.
