Who Am I? and the Biblical Afterlife
Over the past two centuries, a Christian approach to understanding the human spirit/soul has challenged the traditional dualistic approach, where the physical body dies and the immaterial 'soul' or 'spirit' passes into the afterlife awaiting reunification with an incorruptible body. The modern argument that the Hebrews were inherently monistic in their understanding of body and soul has risen to the fore of some modern theological understandings, but is it as strong a case as it is made out to be?
We undertake a contextual exploration of the link between what constitutes being human and the evolving understanding of the afterlife according to the biblical writers.
