On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (12/28/23), Hank shares his thoughts on the Bible’s use of metaphor with regard to images of heaven and the afterlife.

Hank also answers the following questions:

  • I read an article about a 400,000-year-old human fossil. How does this fit with the biblical account of creation? Debbie – St. Peters, MO (4:44)
  • Can you discuss the Jehovah’s Witnesses idea that Jesus is the archangel Michael? If He was, couldn’t He have chosen to rebel as a third of the angels did? Kevin – St. Louis, MO (15:11)
  • Two days before my brother passed, he professed belief in Jesus. Is that enough to get him into heaven? Hank – WA (21:32)
