Reply Joey : January 10, 2010 at 1:02 am I grew up in Conservative Judaism—and I’m pretty sure the Pentateuch says nothing about the after-life. Reply Allison : January 15, 2010 at 4:52 am You’re correct, Joey. There are no explicit references to the afterlife in the Five books of Moses, but the Torah is not our only book. The Talmud is also a central Jewish text and discusses the afterlife. I’ve heard people say that the reason the Torah doesn’t mention life after death is because Judaism is very focused in the goings-on of this world – not living life simply for the rewards of an afterlife. Reply greg_o : October 3, 2010 at 11:41 pm I thought that this was interesting. But, I am glad that I am Christian and that I have the New Testament to study. In my church, we are reviewing a 10 part video titled “Heaven”. Its a real eye opener. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
