Cremation: What Does The Bible Say

Cremation: What Does The Bible Say

Is cremation biblical?

In 1960, only 4% of Americans were cremated. As of 2023, that number is over 52%. Given the popularity of cremation, many Christians want to know if the Bible ever refers to it, and if there is any Biblical precedent for pursuing it. That will be the focus of today’s study.

Questions That We’ll Address:

1) What does the Bible say about cremation? Does it accept the practice?

2) How were bodies dealt with in Biblical days, and is there a precedent for us?

3) Does any of this matter? Does the disposition of one’s physical body really matter in eternity?

Today’s episode ends with a listener question on the topic of ‘tattoos.’
