Psalms: 56, 64


1 Thessalonians: Paul, in this passage, uses the euphemism “sleep” for death, but so did Jesus when He raised Jairus’ daughter (Mark 5:22-43).  People even then were afraid of death much as we are today. Paul wants to comfort people who, by now, are asking “what if? What happens to me if I die before Jesus’ return or after? I’ll tell you this, everyone will taste death as a means of shedding this mortal coil. “For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.” (1 Cor. 15:33)

Gospel: Matthew 6:1-6; 16-18

New Testament: 1 Thess. 4:13-18

Old Testament: Leviticus 16:1-19
