Heidelberg Catechism – Lord’s Day 22

Question 57: How does “the resurrection of the body” comfort you?

Not only will my soul be taken immediately after this life to Christ its head (1), but also my very flesh will be raised by the power of Christ, reunited with my soul and made like Christ’s glorious body (2).

1 – Luke 23:43; Phil. 1:21-23
2 – 1 Cor. 15:20, 42-46, 54; Phil. 3:21; 1 John 3:2

Question 58: How does the article concerning “life everlasting” comfort you?

Even as I already now experience in my heart the beginning of eternal joy (1), so after this life I will have perfect blessedness such as no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no human heart has ever imagined: a blessedness in which to praise God forever (2).

1 – Rom. 14:17
2 – John 17:3; 1 Cor. 2:9
