Each week, Dean of the College of Theology Dr. Jason Hiles and Pastor Tim Griffin sit down together to answer questions submitted by students who are curious about the lesser discussed topics of Christianity.
This week’s question: “Will we know who our family members were when we are in Heaven? Will it matter to us who our immediate family was?”
Dr. Hiles approached this question from logical conclusions that we can find in Scripture. Although there isn’t a book, chapter or verse that gives us a clear answer, Dr. Hiles referenced Revelation 7:9 to draw conclusions that in Heaven, there will be distinctions between every nation, tribe, people and language.
“There is a sense that we will be connected to the people that we knew before,” said Dr. Hiles.
About College of Theology
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
