Death and grief touch every person's life at some time. Jesus Christ showed great compassion to those grieving, and wept for his friend Lazarus despite knowing he was about to be resurrected . If you are under the burden of grief, day to day life can seem impossible, but the hope of the resurrection can be a great comfort as you heal and mourn.

Did Jesus intend the parable of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31) to give us a real-time view of the state of the dead now, either in heaven or an ever-burning hell? How does this parable fit with the teachings of other scriptures about the state of the dead?
