In the opening pages of the Bible, God creates two overlapping realms, the heavens and the earth. This is where the drama of the biblical storyline takes place. Many of us are familiar with the earthly drama. Humans are given a wonderful garden to rule on God’s behalf, but they lose access to this paradise because of a foolish rebellion. But the biblical authors want us to see another set of characters, the inhabitants of the heavenly realm who are also heavily involved in this earthly story.
For lots of different reasons, many modern readers of the Bible don’t notice these characters or don’t know what to make of them. Most of our modern portrayals of angels and demons are based on deep misunderstandings of what the biblical authors are trying to tell us about these creatures. Spiritual beings play a really important role in the biblical story, and that’s what this video series is all about.
