The soul survives after the death of the body. Such is the teaching of the divine Revelation, of which here are some texts:

Survival of the soul

1 Samuel 28,3-19: Samuel’s soul, after his death, spoke to Saul. Some pretend that it was not Samuel, but the demon who spoke to Saul. However, the text reveals that it was Samuel. And Samuel’s predictions came true, a sign that it was not the lying demon.

Matthew 17,1-8: Moses and Elijah appeared by Jesus at the time of Transfiguration. It is true that, according to the Bible, Elijah didn’t die: he was removed to Heaven with his body (2 Kings 2,1-13), but Moses died (Deuteronomy 34,5-7). It is therefore Moses’ soul that appeared.

Luke 16,19-31: The souls of Abraham, of the poor Lazarus and of the wicked rich exist after their death.

Luke 23,43: “In truth, I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise”, said Jesus to the thief who repented on the cross.

1 Peter 3,18-20: Jesus’ soul, between his death and his resurrection, visited the souls of those who died in the past to announce his Advent.

Revelation 6,9: John sees the souls of the martyrs.

Resurrection of the bodies

Matthew 27,52-53: The bodies of many holy people rose from the dead after Jesus’ resurrection.

Luke 20,27-39: Jesus answers the Sadducees who didn’t believe in the resurrection: “The Lord is God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob. Now, He is not God of the dead, but of the living”. This text explains the survival of the soul and the resurrection of the body.

John 5,28-29: The resurrection of the dead revealed by Jesus.

John 6,54: Jesus said: “Who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has the eternal life and I will resurrect him on the last day.”

1 Corinthians 15,12-57: “How is it that some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead!… etc”. Paul explains the resurrection of the bodies and blames those that do not believe therein.

In spite of these obvious biblical confirmations on the survival of the soul after death and the resurrection of the bodies, some supposed believers do not believe therein. Their arguments are incoherent.
