Heaven Has Been Thrown Open

July 1, 2010 | 3 Comments

But according to Christian understanding, the beginning of heavenly bliss is already present — and is also already experienced — in the grace of Christ and in the church of Christ; and this means that heaven has already been thrown open here.” — Jürgen Moltmann in God in Creation

  • yeah baby. I love it.
    Heaven is thrown open in Jesus’ baptism, and we join it in ours.

  • haven’t yet read this text, but reminds me of some of the direction that fretheim takes in his work, ‘God and World in The Old Testament.’

    but yeah. such an incredibly powerful reality.
