      >What is "the repose of the dead"?

      Or - putting it a slightly different way - why would one think that the
      souls of the dead were not *already* at rest? Presumably, because they were
      not in their *place* of final rest. So where were they? Perhaps roaming
      the earth (non-Jewish idea), or perhaps in Sheol (Jewish idea). In either
      case, it seems that they could not yet enter into heaven (their final
      resting place) until the redeemer had come to open the gates of heaven - a
      Jewish idea frequently overlooked.
