(Eccles3:1-2) 1All things have their time, and all things under heaven continue during their interval. 2A time to be born, and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pull up what was planted.
(Eccles7:1) 1A good name is better than precious ointments, and a day of death is better than a day of birth.
(Mt5:5) 5Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be consoled.
(Mt16:24-26) 24Then Jesus said to his disciples: “If anyone is willing to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whoever would save his life, will lose it. But whoever will have lost his life for my sake, shall find it. 26For how does it benefit a man, if he gains the whole world, yet truly suffers damage to his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
(Mt27:50-53) 50Then Jesus, crying out again with a loud voice, gave up his life. 51And behold, the veil of the temple was torn into two parts, from top to bottom. And the earth was shaken, and the rocks were split apart. 52And the tombs were opened. And many bodies of the saints, which had been sleeping, arose. 53And going out from the tombs, after his resurrection, they went into the holy city, and they appeared to many.
(Mk5:35-42) 35While he was still speaking, they arrived from the ruler of the synagogue, saying: “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36But Jesus, having heard the word that was spoken, said to the ruler of the synagogue: “Do not be afraid. You need only believe.” 37And he would not permit anyone to follow him, except Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And they went to the house of the ruler of the synagogue. And he saw a tumult, and weeping, and much wailing. 39And entering, he said to them: “Why are you disturbed and weeping? The girl is not dead, but is asleep.” 40And they derided him. Yet truly, having put them all out, he took the father and mother of the girl, and those who were with him, and he entered to where the girl was lying. 41And taking the girl by the hand, he said to her, “Talitha koumi,” which means, “Little girl, (I say to you) arise. 42And immediately the young girl rose up and walked. Now she was twelve years old. And they were suddenly struck with a great astonishment.
(Lk7:12-15) 12Then, when he had drawn near to the gate of the city, behold, a deceased person was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. 13And when the Lord had seen her, being moved by mercy over her, he said to her, “Do not weep.” 14And he drew near and touched the coffin. Then those who carried it stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 15And the dead youth sat up and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
(Lk20:34-38) 34And so, Jesus said to them: “The children of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35Yet truly, those who shall be held worthy of that age, and of the resurrection from the dead, will neither be married, nor take wives. 36For they can no longer die. For they are equal to the Angels, and they are children of God, since they are children of the resurrection. 37For in truth, the dead do rise again, as Moses also showed beside the bush, when he called the Lord: ‘The God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ 38And so he is not the God of the dead, but of the living. For all are alive to him.”
(Lk23:42-43) 42And he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43And Jesus said to him, “Amen I say to you, this day you shall be with me in Paradise.”
(Jn3:16) 16For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that all who believe in him may not perish, but may have eternal life.
(Jn5:24) 24Amen, amen, I say to you, that whoever hears my word, and believes in him who sent me, has eternal life, and he does not go into judgment, but instead he crosses from death into life.
(Jn6:47-58) 47Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me has eternal life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your fathers ate manna in the desert, and they died. 50This is the bread which descends from heaven, so that if anyone will eat from it, he may not die. 51I am the living bread, who descended from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread, he shall live in eternity. And the bread that I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world.” 52Therefore, the Jews debated among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53And so, Jesus said to them: “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you will not have life in you. 54Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. 57Just as the living Father has sent me and I live because of the Father, so also whoever eats me, the same shall live because of me. 58This is the bread that descends from heaven. It is not like the manna that your fathers ate, for they died. Whoever eats this bread shall live forever.”
(Jn10:27-28) 27My sheep hear my voice. And I know them, and they follow me. 28And I give them eternal life, and they shall not perish, for eternity. And no one shall seize them from my hand.
(Jn11:23) 23Jesus said to her, “Your brother shall rise again.”
(Jn11:25-27) 25Jesus said to her: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in me, even though he has died, he shall live. 26And everyone who lives and believes in me shall not die for eternity. Do you believe this?” 27She said to him: “Certainly, Lord. I have believed that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God, who has come into this world.”
(Rom8:18) 18For I consider that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with that future glory which shall be revealed in us.
(1Cor2:9) 9But this is just as it has been written: “The eye has not seen, and the ear has not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love him.”
(2Cor4:17-18) 17For though our tribulation is, at the present time, brief and light, it accomplishes in us the weight of a sublime eternal glory, beyond measure. 18And we are contemplating, not the things that are seen, but the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are temporal, whereas the things that are not seen are eternal.
(2Cor5:6-8) 6Therefore, we are ever confident, knowing that, while we are in the body, we are on a pilgrimage in the Lord. 7For we walk by means of faith, and not by sight. 8So we are confident, and we have the good will to be on a pilgrimage in the body, so as to be present to the Lord.
(Philippians1:21) 21For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
(Philippians3:20-21) 20But our way of life is in heaven. And from heaven, too, we await the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, 21who will transform the body of our lowliness, according to the form of the body of his glory, by means of that power by which he is even able to subject all things to himself.
(1Thess4:13-14) 13And we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are sleeping, so as not to be sorrowful, like these others who do not have hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus has died and risen again, so also will God bring back with Jesus those who sleep in him.
(1Tim6:6-7) 6But piety with sufficiency is great gain. 7For we brought nothing into this world, and there is no doubt that we can take nothing away.
(Apoc1:17-18) 17And when I had seen him, I fell at his feet, like one who is dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18And I am alive, though I was dead. And, behold, I live forever and ever. And I hold the keys of death and of Hell.
(Apoc14:13) 13And I heard a voice from heaven, saying to me: “Write: Blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord, now and hereafter, says the Spirit, so that they may find rest from their labors. For their works follow them.”
