Death: What did Jesus say about Death

According to the Bible, Jesus had a lot to say about death and dying. Here are some relevant Bible verses and three main takeaways from Jesus’ teachings on this topic:

Death is not the end.

  • “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” (John 11:25-26)
  • “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:1-3)

Death leads to eternal life.

  • “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
  • “I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24)

Death is necessary for new life.

  • “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” (John 12:24)
  • “Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.” (Luke 9:23-24)

Three main takeaways from Jesus’ teachings on death and dying:

  1. Death is not the end, but rather the beginning of eternal life with God.
  2. Believing in Jesus and his sacrifice leads to eternal life.
  3. Death is necessary for new life and following Jesus requires sacrificing our own desires.
