More about afterlife

A teaching from Revelation 2 and a eulogy in respect of the passing of Beth Immanuel community elder Marvin Root (ז״ל).

After the resurrection of the dead comes the final judgment. According to Hebrews 6, the eternal judgment is one of the elementary principles of the Messiah, yet it is poorly understood among believers today. This teaching provides a quick synopsis of the subject.

The Evangelical gospel asks, "Are you certain you are going to go to heaven when you die?" The Christian objective seems to be to secure a place in heaven, but the Bible says very little about heaven. Find out why most passages about heaven are actually not about heaven at all in this installment on the basic teachings of the Messiah from Hebrews 6. 

The Bible says we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses. Are the biblical saints of old watching us live our lives like characters in a bad reality TV show?

The writer of the book of Hebrews refers to the biblical saints as a great cloud of witnesses. What does that term imply?

What's the difference between the resurrection and going to heaven?

According to Hebrews 6:1-2, the resurrection of the dead is one of the six basic doctrines of Messianic faith. In this teaching, D. Thomas Lancaster takes a look at the apostolic hope in the resurrection, distinguishing between the resurrection of the righteous and the general resurrection. This is teaching number 25 in the Hebrews series and number 10 in special series on the elementary teachings of the Messiah.

Have you ever wondered about the hereafter?

"When the poor man died, the angels carried him to Avraham’s lap. The rich man also died and was buried. He was in she’ol, and his pain was very great." (Luke 16:22–23)

The traditional Christian view of Heaven and Hell assumes that both exist. Beyond that, Christianity disagrees with itself on what Heaven is, what Hell is, who goes where, and how long they stay.
