Bible verses about "life after death" | Whiston

Matthew 10:28

28 And fear not them who kill the body, but are nor able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

John 16:22

22 And ye now therefore shall have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one taketh from you.

Romans 6:23

23 For the wages of sin [is] death: but the gift of God [is] eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:51-57

51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall all arise again, but we shall not all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, (for the trumpet shall sound) and the dead shall arise incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where [is] thy sting? O death, where [is] thy victory? 56 The sting of death [is] sin and the strength of sin [is] the law. 57 But thanks [be] to God who hath given us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But we would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died, and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them who are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive, and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.

Philippians 3:20-21

20 For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, [to be] like unto his glorious body; according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Luke 23:43

43 But Jesus answered and said unto him, that rebuked [the other,] Be of good courage, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

John 14:1-31

1 And he said to his disciples, Let not your heart be troubled: Believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Fathers house are many mansions, But if not I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I shall go to prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto my self, that where I am, ye may be also. 4 And whither I go, ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas who was called Didymus, saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest, and how do we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you; and yet hast thou not know me Philip? he that hath seen me, hath seen the Father; and how sayst thou, Shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I have spoken unto you, I spake not of my self: but the Father, that abideth in me, he doth his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe for the very works sake, 12 Verily, verily I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do, shall he do also, and greater than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it]. 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him, for he abideth with you, and is in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans: I come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more: but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 In that day ye shall know, that I [am] in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father: and I will love him, and will manifest my self to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Scarioth, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thy self unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If any one love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and I will come unto him, and make my abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not, will not keep my sayings: and the word which you hear, is not mine, but his who sent me. 25 These things I have spoken unto you, being present with you. 26 But the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, whom my Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I shall say unto you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard that I said unto you, I go away, and come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoyce, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that when it shall come to pass, ye might believe me. 30 Hereafter I will not talk many things to you: for the prince of the world cometh, and hath nothing to find in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as he commanded me, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

John 3:16

16 For God hath so loved the world, that he hath given his only begotten Son, that every one who believeth on him, should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 5:24

24 Verily verily I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath eternal life, and shall not come into judgement; but is passed from death unto life.

John 11:25

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he were dead, yet shall he live;
