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.
