What We'll Look Like in Heaven

What We'll Look Like in Heaven

How can we look forward to reinhabiting these worthless husks that we leave behind in death?
Single Session Bible Study


Craig Payne of Ottumwa, Iowa, asks a good question: "If after death, we are already in the joy of God's presence, what exactly do we gain from a bodily resurrection– Timothy George, theologian, seminary professor, and executive editor of CHRISTIANITY TODAY, provides a concise answer. In this study, we'll review George's insights and the biblical texts behind them. We'll probe what some people consider to be a difficult issue: If to be "absent from the body" means for believers to be "present with the Lord" as Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:8, why bother with the bodily resurrection? Isn't simply being in the presence of God good enough?
