The OT Doctrine of the Future life

The Doctrine of Sheol

Beliefs regarding the Dead

1. Burial It was indispensable to the Heb. because . . .
- of the fact that man is created in the image of God
- out or respect for the dead
- the Heb. unlike the Greek didn't divide man up. The body was not something to cast away or burn. Even the body of a criminal was to be treated properly. Deut. 21/21-23

To a Heb. lack of burial was a calamity. 11 Kings 9/10
Lack of burial awaited Gods enemies Isaiah 66/24, Jer. 25/33
1 Sam. 31/8-10 This was considered an outrage

2. The Family Grave
It was important to the Heb. It may not be important to me where I am buried but the Heb. wanted to be buried with his family.
1 Kings 13/22
Both Jacob and Joseph were to be taken out of Egypt and buried in Canaan. Gen. 47/30 50/25 Ex. 13/19
