We have all experienced falling asleep at night and waking up in the morning refreshed to start a new day. God uses sleep and awakening as a metaphor in the Bible to describe death. Aaron McKee and Tim Young go through this essential Bible study on sleep and how it has a wonderful message of hope beyond death. Our key verse is from 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”
Season 2 starts where we left off last season with the question, “Where is Genesis 2:7 quoted in the New Testament?” This leads on a journey to understand Paul’s message about the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. Along the way, our Bible study reveals to us the meaning of the word “soul” and its connection with Psalm 49. Listen in as Tim Young and Steven Macfarlane discuss this essential Bible study.
