Will Heaven Really Be A Place On Earth?

Many Christians simplistically believe that when we die we will “go to heaven to be with Jesus forever.” The truth is that 1 Corinthians 15 and other Scriptures make clear that we will one day be reunited with our bodies.

It is also worth noting that although it is true that the Bible begins in a garden, it ends in a city.
