An Insight from C.S. Lewis through Doug Wilson

Doug Wilson:

In another of Lewis’s books, The Great Divorce, he describes heaven as a place of real solidity and real color compared to the shadowy ghost world down below. We sometimes think that when Jesus rose from the dead, He turned into a kind of ghost. After all, didn’t He walk through the walls of the upper room where the disciples were meeting? The problem is that it never occurs to us that the wall was the ghost. Jesus could walk through the wall because He is more solid and more real than the wall. (p. 167)
