Now we’re going to read from Luke’s Gospel chapter 16, if you care to follow it, verse 19. A passage in which Jesus said more about the life after death than anywhere else in all His teaching. It’s in the form of a story or a parable, but it’s true to life and the afterlife.
Luke 16:19-31: ‘There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, full of sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom.
And the rich man also died, and was buried. And in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus in his bosom. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’
But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’
