What could a book written over 3000 years ago have to say to contemporary America?  Maybe, quite a lot.  In many ways, the long-ago time of the Judges of Israel is similar to the time in which we live.  The times were unstable, life was challenging, and enemies were threatening.  The hope of the people came to be centered in the coming of a “king,” a development that did, in fact, offer deliverance from their difficulties.  The same can be said of our world today.

On the night before Jesus went to the cross, He told His disciples that He was going away to prepare a place for them. He encouraged them by saying that one day He would return to take them home to be with Him (John 14:1-3). As believers, Scripture assures us that one day we too will also be where Jesus is – in Heaven. Heaven is Jesus’ promise to us of our future home, but what do we know about it? There is much we can learn from studying Scripture about this wonderful place. Join us on an eight-week journey as we peak into the windows of Heaven using Scripture as our guide. We will discover what it will be like, what we will do there, who we will recognize, and, most importantly, what we can do to point others to Heaven.
