How Does the Verse in Ecclesiastes About the Spirit of the Beast Going Down to Earth Relate to the Resurrection of Animals? In this Q&A session, Randy Alcorn answered many questions about his book Heaven. The Authorized Version, which gives the Masoretic reading, is supposed to harmonize better with the assertion at the end of the book (Ecclesiastes ), that the spirit returns to the God who gave it. But there is no formal denial of the immortality of the soul in the present passage as we render it. The question, indeed, is not touched.

The book of Ecclesiastes provides a stark example of how relevant the Old Testament can be in today's world. The title of the book comes from the Greek word for "preacher" or "teacher."

Ecclesiastes (/ ɪˌkliːziˈæstiːz /; Hebrew: קֹהֶלֶת, qōheleṯ, Greek: Ἐκκλησιαστής, Ekklēsiastēs) is one of 24 books of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible), where it is classified as one of the Ketuvim (Writings). Originally written c. – BCE, it is also among the canonical Wisdom literature of the Old Testament in most denominations of Christianity. It's the word for a man who addresses an assembly. The corresponding word in the Greek is the word ekklesiastic, and that's where the book of Ecclesiastes gets its name.
