The Bible is not very concrete in its discussions about the afterlife. We have to deal mostly with metaphors and allegories. Perhaps the only straightforward declaration is “There will be no marriage or giving of marriage in heaven.” This means we don’t have much to go on except that it is clear that there will be an afterlife. You will note that pinning down its precise nature is elusive and probably beyond human comprehension. Yet there are clues, and we go into them. I ask Dr. Epperly where he begins to think about all this.
