Question: Jesus said ‘He who believes in me though he dies yet shall he live but he who lives by believing in me shall never see death.’
What exactly does the second part mean?
Let’s read the verses together.
Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Jesus is saying, He is the resurrection of life.
If we believe in Him, though we may pass away (physically) , we will live again (spiritually) , even forever.
Joh 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
This second verse was stated for “whosoever liveth,” being those that are presently alive. If they/we believe in Jesus, we will never die (spiritually). Our physical body may perish, but we will be resurrected like Jesus, and live with Him forever in paradise.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
