Have you ever gone to a funeral for someone you don’t know? You might be feeling a little sad, but also secretly wishing you could get back to your day, right? Contrast that with going to a funeral of someone you’ve known and loved from the beginning till the end of their life—someone you long to see again.
We experience loss differently when we know the full story. We have a fuller understanding of what has been broken. And we have a deeper longing for resolution. Well in this last episode of the series, we’re going to turn our attention to the part of the story that we’re still longing for, which we get a glimpse of in Revelation—the book that comes at the very end of our Bibles.
I’m so delighted to have Nancy Guthrie back. She was with us in our first episode of this series, where we talked about Eden’s Fall. Nancy Guthrie is an author, speaker and Bible teacher. I highly recommend her podcast, Help Me Teach the Bible podcast at The Gospel Coalition. And I also have thoroughly enjoyed her Biblical Theology Workshop for Women.
What I love about Nancy is her grasp of the whole story of the Bible. She has such a brilliant understanding of how the pieces fit together. This conversation is such a gift.
Where else can I listen to this podcast?
