Jesus brought life back to those who will put his faith upon Him. Jesus taught to His disciples that we all will be resurrected again and will live with Him forever. Even His followers were not sure about the life after death but when Jesus met them after His resurrection,they believed Him.
Many people do not know that we have life after our physical death. Jesus said if we believe him we will not see death anymore. Adam was the first man by whom sin entered into the world,but Jesus is the second Adam through whom we get our life. When Adam and Eve ate the fruit which God told them not to eat, death entered in our life.
The Bible says that we all are sinners and deserve death as punishment. But if we accept Jesus as our saviour, we get rid of the power of sin. Jesus died on behalf of us at the cross to deliver us from the wrath of God.
Jesus says that the resurrection is for all, even the sinners also will be resurrected from the death. But those who will follow Him and obey all His commandments will live with Him in heaven forever.
