What Is Heaven‪?‬ Our Hope Podcast

    • Christianity

Contemporary culture provides a variety of views of heaven—from pearly gates to sitting on clouds, strumming harps, and wearing wings. Different world religions offer an array of descriptions often characterizing heaven as a place of perfect peace and happiness, absent of pain and suffering, and the place where God dwells. But what does Scripture say?
 
In this episode, we will learn what the Bible says and what Jewish people understand about heaven. We will also discuss how an understanding of heaven can help our faith as followers of Yeshua. Our guest is Darrell Bock, senior research professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. Together, we ponder questions like:
What did Yeshua teach about heaven?How is heaven viewed within Jewish culture?Why is it important, as believers, to be conscious of heaven?
