A thought struck me the other day as I was driving with some students in the car. I thought a thought I’d never thought before, and I am quite intrigued by it.
In Heaven (wherever or whatever that is) there are four earthly bodies that we know of from the Scriptures. Moses, Elijah, and Enoch were presumably assumed into heaven with their earthly bodies very much still intact. And then of course, Jesus Christ, ascended into heaven with His resurrected body. So, are there three non-resurrected bodies living in heaven? Or was their flesh discarded somewhere in the journey? And, for interest’s sake, what are those three bodies doing in a world of souls? Do questions like these have any implications on our beliefs and/or thoughts about heaven?
Post Scriptum: If you are Roman you would also be including the Blessed Mary in this (?)
