When Heaven Meets Earth

Bible Project
By

The Bible is massive. It’s daunting. And the idea of reading it all in order—well, that sounds like a New Year’s resolution we’ve all tried and failed. But we believe the Bible is a profound and beautiful book telling one complete story from beginning to end, and we believe that one of the main themes of that story is the relationship between heaven and earth.

Watch below to learn more about the fascinating way the Bible talks about these intersecting dimensions.

When we use the words “heaven” and “earth,” we are talking about two different domains. Heaven is God’s domain. It is ruled by God. In heaven, God is the one who defines what is good and what is evil. It’s where God’s will is always done. The biblical authors call this domain by different names, including God’s kingdom, paradise, eternal life, and, of course, heaven.

Earth is our domain. On earth, humans have chosen to be the ones who define good and evil. Biblical authors give this domain a few different names, too: the world, the present age, and the age of sin and death. Notice that two of those names imply that humanity’s domain is only temporary, an age, which, by definition, comes to an end.

The story of the Bible is the story of heaven on earth being ripped into heaven and earth, followed by God’s glorious mission to reunite these two realms once again.
