I have been a bit confused about this but why does 'the Teacher' (the author of Ecclesiastes) seem to have no concept of an 'afterlife'? My religious studies teacher keeps saying this is due to Hebrew people back then not believing in one until much later. How do we explain this?

Although my teacher did say Jesus was born in Jerusalem... oh and that the first mention of an afterlife is in David... and that God used to be confined to a single place just like a pagan god... so he isnt the most reliable...

BUT I have heard this before from other sources. How do we answer them?
