Does the Bible Teach that the Saints in Heaven Are Alive?

Full Question

What Scripture verse(s) can be used to support the belief that saints in heaven are alive?


The Bible does teach that the saints are alive. Consider, for example, that Jesus teaches that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is “not God not of the dead, but of the living” (Matt. 22:32; see also 22:23-33). In addition, Moses and Elijah are alive to Jesus at the Transfiguration and converse with him, even though their earthly deaths had occurred many years before (see Matt. 17:1-8). For further reading, please read the Catholic Answers tract “Praying to the Saints.”
Catholic Answers tracts often address many questions our supporters have.
