Some biblical illustrations are harder to understand than others, particularly in the 21st century. Consider Jesus’ words in John, Chapter 10. John noted in this passage that the disciples had difficulty with the sheep and shepherd metaphors.
When we asked Bill Warrick what he would say if he only had five minutes to tell someone about Heaven, Bill shared that he told his own father about Jesus representing himself as the great shepherd. Bill’s video continues to get steady play on this blog, so obviously people are curious about Heaven.
Here’s a beautiful video short that illustrates Jesus’ metaphors about the way to Heaven. It’s perfectly clear—there’s only one gate.

Thanks David. I really appreciate the work you are doing with your Reasons For The Hope blog. I always learn something, and it frequently causes me to dig deeper. Quite a lively debate this week, and I admire your style in adopting a charitable approach to apolgetics. When you run into an intractable skeptic, sometimes the best takeaway is kindness. God bless. http://dwwork.wordpress.com/
