“Depart and be with Christ” – Heaven at Death or Resurrection Hope?

In this short video I discuss Philippians 1:21-23, a passage often cited to suggest that Paul believed that he will depart his body when he dies to be with Christ in heaven. I suggest, rather, that Paul is speaking of the resurrection hope which he will benefit from after falling “asleep” in death.

Please share this video/post if you find its discussion fruitful for others.

  1. Thanks Dustin. That was a tricky scripture for me, especially as the resurrection passed then. But maybe now an instant transformation is probable since he came in that generation. What do you think?

    1. Thanks for watching. Perhaps you could elaborate more on your comment, as I am not sure what you are getting at.
