Episode outline

  • The Resurrection—The resurrection is God’s vindication of Jesus and an unexpected fulfillment of Israel’s hopes.
  • Jesus’ Resurrected Body—Jesus’ resurrected body affirms the goodness of physical creation, acts as a sign of the new heavens and the new earth, and challenges misconceptions we may have about heaven.
  • New Heavens and New Earth— The resurrection points to the promise of cosmic shalom—the complete transformation and renewal of creation.
  • Citizens of Heaven—As citizens of heaven, we are to faithfully live out the story of Scripture as a sign and foretaste of this final restoration.

Sample discussion questions

  • Where have you experienced a sense of hopelessness when seeing the brokenness of the world around us?
  • What are common cultural pictures of heaven? How do these pictures compare with Christ’s resurrection and the promise of our own resurrection?
  • How does the promise of the new heavens and the new earth make a difference today? How might it make a difference for what we do now?
