The capstone of all biblical theology is summedThomas Schreiner, New Testament Theology (Introduction)
up in the words “they will see his face” (Rev. 22:4).
The Bible uses sensory language to help us glimpse the slightest taste of what awaits us in the new creation. Isaiah and Luke direct us to see (...Lift up your eyes on high and see - Isaiah 40v26 ...all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Luke 3v6). Elsewhere we're invited to taste, to hear...
The unfolding story of God begins with The Man and The LORD together in Eden... hits the tragedy of exile and then begins the worship of God once more... the walking of Enoch... the tabernacle... the temple... the incarnation... the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and finally entry into the renewed creation where the dwelling of God is with man. A Jehovah's Witness tried to persuade me that this was just symbolic but everything in scripture cries out for something a whole lot more than symbolism.
