What Will Our Spiritual Bodies Be Like in Heaven?

Episode 395 Show Notes 

From the Show

It's a blessing that our soul goes to be with the Lord instead of hell
but even that isn't final salvation. As Paul tells us in Romans 8 the final salvation is the redemption of our bodies. When our bodies share in that glorification on the last day, then it will be said, "death is swallowed up in victory." God will have redeemed all of creation.

— Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. In 1 Corinthians 15 it speaks of a spiritual body that we will receive in heaven. I’m confused about this because the Bible doesn’t seem to say much about it. Can you shed some light on what our spiritual bodies will be like and how that will be different from the physical body we now have?

2. How do you understand the story of Judah and Tamar? What are we supposed to learn from this?

3. If I'm depressed and have anxiety am I a bad Christian?

4. Can you speak to the idea that God helps those who help themselves? There are a lot of Christians that believe that we just need to sit around and wait for God to do everything. When the Bible gives us a very different picture.
