Future

This GodPod was recorded as part of a lecture given by Professor Jeremy Begbie on 'The Spirit and Christianity's Upside-Down Future' at St Mellitus College. This lecture was part of the McDonald Lecture Series – a collaboration between St Mellitus College and the McDonald Agape Foundation, enabled through a generous donation from the McDonald Agape Foundation.

What was the nature of Jesus’ resurrection, and how does it relate to our own hope for life after death? In fact, is such hope just for our own lives or for the whole of creation? Graham, Mike, and Jane discuss the bodily resurrection of Jesus and its affirmation of the goodness of physical matter, drawing out its implications for the way we live our lives now as well as our hope for the future. They also address the question of whether there is a hierarchy in heaven. Do some people get better mansions than others?
