> The bible writes about death in many ways. Some of the important verses are in the book of Revelation written by John who was a Jew and I think that what he wrote could be understood by a Jew that was versed in the scriptures that Jews used.

> The author writes that the book is to 7 {churches} which are in Asia. What is a {church}? The word in Greek is meaning a group that is {called out};[(ekklesia)]. This could be a group of Jews or others. So the book {could} have been written to Jewish congregations that were being persecuted by the Romans, for Jerusalam was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. These {churches} could have be made up of Jews and non-Jews that fled Rome.

Another aspect of death that Jews could understnd as per reading John's writings is that in their scriptures they had a book that is called,{Deuteronomy} which is a Greek word from a Latin word. The Jews called their books by the first words of the book which in this case is,[...These are the words...].
The author is considered to be Moses near his death about 40 years after the Exodus. In the book, it reads in 30,
[...I call heaven and earth..today...I have set before you life and death...thearfore choose life...].
Jews that know of the scripture see that life and death can be a choice, but their God writes in their scriptures to >choose< life.
