Here is another good animation from The Bible Project that visualizes the Biblical theme of Heaven and Earth. I appreciate what these guys are doing and the emphasis they put on the merging of God’s space and our space into one, rather than the transference from our space to God’s space after we die. This is a big move for Evangelicals, since most of Western Evangelical Christianity has been based upon Platonic dualism and escape-hatch theology, so I applaud it. Lutherans, on the other hand, have lived in the paradox of the “kingdom on the left and the kingdom on the right” for a long time, so I wonder how this video might be done differently from a Lutheran perspective. Both camps find common ground in the promise of a preferred future, which I think is nicely depicted in this video. I believe this is the movement of the missional church.
Thanks Tim and Jonathan!
