Bible Study: A Christian View of Death Series [Part 3 of 3: Questions]

Rev. John D. Schuetze


Death comes to all people, Christian and heathen alike. At no juncture in life is the distinction between Christian and non-Christian cultures more distinct than in the view of death. This Bible study is the third of three that will address the Christian view of death.


2 Corinthians 5:8-9 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.

Philippians 1:23-25 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith.

Psalms 31:15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.
