What on earth are we doing for heaven’s sake? What is the significance of the resurrection of Jesus for our lives today. What happens when we die? What do we hope for after death? Is heaven the ultimate destination, our final ‘home’? Often our vision of heaven, the way that we imagine it, looks so terribly boring – is that true? Is the point of the Christian life just to ‘save souls’? Does heaven have anything to say about things like global warming and the mission of the Church? Come along for a great Biblical journey from the dawn of creation to the second coming of Jesus and the final judgement to discover what it really means to be a citizen of heaven.
The first of a five-part lecture series, this first night reflects on the understanding of death in our society and the nature of Christian belief in the resurrection. (29’07”)
