Jesus ended every funeral he attended. He brought the only son of a widow from the village of Nain back to life. I wonder what the people thought when Jesus stopped the funeral procession?
Jesus is still doing the that. Death is not the end. Jesus defeated sin and death on the cross. Faith in Jesus and His resurrection gives us new life. We do not have to live in fear of death because we know for Christians it is the gate to eternal life with Christ.
We personally mourn at the death of someone we love. But we don't have to fear death ourselves because we know that Jesus has defeated sin and death for us.
