The OT doctrine of the Future life|
The OT saints didn't have full light but had enough to have hope for a future life. In the OT death had profound spiritual implications. Death is abnormal and unnatural.It comes because of sin.
God is in control of death. It doesn't just happen. The sovereign God of the OT shows he has the power of life and death. Death in ending the physical doesn't end existence. The OT shows the nephesh (person) goes to Sheol. In Israel only the Sadducees denied this.
