Do you know?

I was doing my Bible Study last night and read about Abraham's bosom in Luke 16:22 and then read Matthew 27:52-53...I had never heard of Abraham's bosom before and thought it was way cool...anyone want to guess what it is?

***Answer - Ephesians 4:8, "This is why it says, 'When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men." Bob Yandian's book "Ephesians- Our Blue Print to Maturity" says that before Jesus' sacrifice, believers had not yet gone to heaven to be in God's presence because of their sin. So where did they go? They went to a paradise called "Abraham's Bosom" in an underworld compartment. Read Luke 16:22. They waited there until Jesus paid the wages of sin with his death and took them to heaven. When they ascended many of them got their old bodies back from the grave, walked in the city of Jerusalem, and died again ascending to heaven. Read Matthew 27:52-53. Who needs to watch TV...this is fascinating.

Off the top of my head, doesn't it have something to do with the way they sat at the dinner table?
