NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

 QUESTION 12

What Hope Can We Have for the Dead?

“Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”

John 5:28, 29

“There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”

Acts 24:15

“I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.”

Revelation 20:12, 13
