Some Interviews with Jesse on Fairies, the Fall, and the Restoration of All Things…

    1. Yes, many in the New Testament and early church likely thought of Christ as reigning in a highest heaven that was physically above our own firmament. However, at least some of them would have also thought of this highest heaven in metaphysical terms at the same. Plato did not think, for example, that the movements of the visible stars corresponded exactly to the most real movements of true stars. Many would have believed that we can’t see the fullness of reality or even the fullness of spacial and temporal relationships. So modern scientific cosmology doesn’t challenge Platonic thinking, and many New Testament and early church writers would not have been as shocked by modern cosmology as people tend to assume.
