What Happens When We Die — Part 2: Paradise

This is Episode 90 of the Jesus Society Podcast. Only ten more till we hit 100!!

Today we’re going to continue talking about what happens when we die. We talked last week about the concept of purgatory, which I definitely don’t believe in, and I laid out why last week. Today I want to talk about a word we don’t talk nearly enough about — paradise.

As I said last week, and which I’ll probably say again next week, it’s important that we get our thinking straight on all this, at least so we can quit worrying about what happens after death start paying a little more attention to what we do before death.

So join me today as we discuss:

1. Restful happiness in the presence of Jesus.

2. Paradise or heaven???

3. The three passages in the New Testament where paradise is spoken of.

4. Wait . . . THREE heavens???

5. How the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Old Testament) uses the word paradise.

6. But aren’t we “citizens of heaven?”

7. And what about the “many mansions” Jesus says are in his Father’s house?
