N.T. Wright and the Colbert Report

20 Jun

Catch Biblical scholar extraordinaire, N.T. Wright, being interviewed by political satirist, Stephen Colbert, on the Colbert Report, here.  Wright and Colbert start their surprisingly non-political interchange about the New Heavens and New Earth right after a chat with Cookie Monster…about 10:30 into the episode.

Wright takes on the sub-biblical notion that the point of Christianity is to die and go to heaven. Nope! Christians don’t die and go to heaven…at least not ultimately. Christians die, go to heaven and THEN go to the New Heavens and New Earth! (read Revelation!)
