King "Tut's" tomb reveals one more proof that human beings of all ages have held a hope of life after death in some form or other. Their ideas as to when, how and where have varied as widely as the menus they have eaten. Comparatively few have inquired of the witness who has actually qualified as their Creator and the ruler of their destiny. Still fewer have taken Him at His word and faced the facts. Very few indeed have met the conditions of His promise that have to do with future life.

These important questions of How are the dead raised? With what body do they come? will be treated convincingly from the Bible's standpoint in a free lecture in Hampton town hall at three o'clock, Sunday afternoon, June 17. All are welcome.
