Most of us are looking forward to something we know very little about.
“The problem is not that the scripture doesn’t tell us much about Heaven. It is that we don’t pay attention to what it DOES tell us!” ~ John Piper
Jesus used REAL PEOPLE, most likely because these are REAL PLACES.
Jesus clearly believed his own teaching about the afterlife.
Heaven is real, but faith in Jesus is the only way to experience it.
