The Bible does not specifically mention near-death experiences or out-of-body experiences. However, it does contain references to people experiencing spiritual encounters or visions that may be similar to these phenomena. For example, in the book of Revelation, the apostle John describes having a vision of heaven and the throne room of God (Revelation 4:1-2). The prophet Ezekiel also had a vision of heaven in which he saw God's glory and received revelation from Him (Ezekiel 1:1-28). In the New Testament, the apostle Paul describes being caught up to the third heaven and hearing things that were not meant to be shared with others (2 Corinthians 12:2-4). It is important to note that these experiences were not the same as near-death experiences or out-of-body experiences as we understand them today. They were spiritual encounters that were recorded in the Bible for the purpose of revealing God's nature and His plans for the world.
