Heaven and Earth

Revelation 21:1 (NLT) – Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared.

I really enjoyed this 7 minute video about heaven and earth by The Bible Project.  In the Garden of Eden, heaven and earth were the same.  After Adam and Eve’s first sin, heaven and earth became separate spaces.  The video’s illustrations helped me understand how and when they sometimes overlap as well as how animal sacrifice works and how Jesus’ death wiped away our sin.  Pretty good work by the creators!

Watch and let me know if you learned anything new.  The Bible Project also has two videos about the book of Genesis and is working on two about Exodus.  I’m glad I discovered this project through Jeff Bethke.

Do you have a moment to read the context of today’s verse?  Click on the scripture reference to link to a longer portion at Bible Gateway.
