Truly it is seen that this man could see beyond the limits of mortal life
and embrace by faith the life hereafter. He properly portrays the hope
shared by Christians that those who are in Christ shall rise again, and
that Death is to be outdone someday by Life.
His words are to comfort those who have laid their dead beneath the earth
to see that ground from God's perspective. 1 Corinthians 15:22 "For as in
Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."

Jim from China
