The doctrine of the Hereafter is one of the important teachings of the Bible and the Holy Quran. In both texts, there are several verses in this regard. However, the meaning and nature of the Hereafter are different in these two books. Such a difference has also ultimately led to differences in the approach of the two books in introducing the doctrine of the resurrection. This article has been written with the aim of showing the fundamental difference between the approaches of these two texts in introducing the doctrine of resurrection. The method of the article is customary content analysis through which the authors have explored the conceptual framework of the mentioned doctrine in both texts. According to this method, the Bible, using a special conceptual framework, introduces the doctrine of the Hereafter, which is as follows: death, return of Christ, resurrection, day of God, letters of action, judgment, renewal of earth and sky, afterlife, heaven and hell. The conceptual framework of both books is somewhat similar. Concepts such as "Letter of Action", "Witnesses", and "Judgment" show that the main and general approach and purpose of both books in presenting the doctrine of the Hereafter is ethical. However, the Holy Quran pursues this goal more clearly than the Bible. In contrast with regard to presenting the doctrine of the Hereafter, the Bible pursues more theological contexts than the Quran. The Gospels seek to justify the Christian faith by emphasizing the return of Jesus and the resurrection of the dead.
