John 11:25-26 -- "die, yet shall he live" and "lives ... shall never die"

Joh 11,25-26 (ASV)

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live;

26 and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this?

John 11:25-26 (NASB)

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,

26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Do the words "live" and "die" always mean and refer to the same thing?

What did Jesus mean with his statement, especially so what is stated in v.26?
