Judgment to Come for the Already-Dead

In reading Matthew 12:41ff, it struck me that Jesus made it clear that the long-dead inhabitants of the long-dead city of Ninevah would one day experience a judgment.

In other words, dead people don't stay dead.

The second thing I noticed from this passage is that in the Great Day of Judgment, we are just as likely to give testimony for or against others as others are to testify for or against us.

I'd hate to be Hitler on that day.
