When Jesus arrived at Bethany near Jerusalem, his fiend Lazarus has been dead for four days. Jesus went to the grave site with Martha and Mary, the sisters of the deceased man.Soon a crowd gathered. Can you imagine the joy of Martha and Mary when Jesus raisedLazarus back to life?—John 11:21-24;38-44.Martha believed that the dead would rise. She have long known that God will resurrect thedead to live on earth again.—Job 14:14, 15.
We are physical creatures made out of dust. (Genesis 2:7;3:19)We are not spirits thatmerely inhabit a body of flesh. We do not have something inside us that survive death.When we die, our brain dies, our thoughts perish. Lazarus said nothing of his experiencein death because the dead are unconscious.—
Does God torment people in fire after death? Clearly, since the Bible shows the dead areunconscious, hell is a false teaching. It slanders God. The idea of tormenting people in fireis disgusting to him.—
