Why did God wait till Daniel to reveal heaven and hell?

edit *nevermind, I apparently misread the Daniel passage, it clearly acknowledges that the judgement is something which ‘will’ happen. Can you remove this thread?

Interesting… I suppose this is one of the pitfalls of “systematic theology” in that there’s no way I would have known where the Bible first speaks of heaven or hell (or anything like it – even that verse in Daniel is not all that explicit about it). I have often been confused about Saul seeing a witch, and how exactly that’s supposed to fit into “biblical” theology.
