The Here, the Now, the Future

Reading Matthew 24-25 always brings up the different theologies surrounding the end times, etc.

This interview and post by Scot McKnight is interesting. Especially this quote:

I believe heaven will be here, on earth. I believe in transformed physical existence. It will be what we have now only transformed into ideal conditions.

Jesus was raised from the dead and people recognized him, but his body was transformed to a new kind of body. I think that’s what it will be like. You will have a perfect nose. (McKnight is making an inside joke about the awful incident in which Poe the Demon Dog almost took off my entire nose.)

I know NT Wright has written a book on the end of all things I really need to plunge into as well. Just an interesting perspective from a very solid evangelical.
