The Bible’s cosmology can be weird and hard to believe. What is there for us if we can’t get excited about ruling over angels?

(More) We have a second ...…
 
This is where things start to get weird. Nate and Tim look at the Bible’s strange hope that humanity would one day come to rule not only on earth but over the gods in the heavens. And to Paul, for that to happen, we’ll need bodies fit for inhabiting both heaven and earth simultaneously. This one got so nutty and went so long that it had to be s ...…
 
God will one day lead a revolution to overturn the power structures of the world. The biblical writers call this "heaven."

Collectively, the Bible consists of complex literary layers stacked atop one another. Stories and motifs are recycled and re-used.
