We are told that death is a part of life, but it is not. Death was not originally a part of life! God told Adam and Eve to steer clear of sin so that they would not die. The book of Romans also makes this connection, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (ROMANS 6:23). When humanity sinned, or turned away from God, we set sin loose in the universe, and it changed all things. Now, we all experience death as a result of sin. In chapter 23 of Genesis, we learn that death was thought of in a unique way. Abraham knew that God would one day resurrect the dead, and he decided he wanted a special place for the burial of his wife. He bought the cave of the field of Machpelah.
