Suzie, the passage in Luke 23:56 is interpreted wrong by you. According to John 19:39 Nicodemus brought a hundred pounds of spices and aloes, and him and Joseph wrapped Jesus. These were Judeans who followed the Sabbath. Both man were associated with the Jewish leaders who orchestrated the comspiracy against Jesus, who followed the law. The women on v. 55 wanted to us their own oils an spices and were unable to finish preparing the body when the Sabbath began, so they returned Sunday morning expecting to finish the task that had been interupted by the Sabbath. The Sabbath was very much in effect for those under the Law. The Church begin during Pentacost. You are still speaking for people under the Law.

Suzieh - A definite article (English the) is used before singular and plural nouns that refer to a particular member of a group.

In this case, the righteous is a member of a group, not just to an individual.

There is a definite article before "the righteous". Do you think that means there is only one righteous who will inherit eternal life?

Mat 25:46
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal.

Or do you think there is only one commandment?

As far as the Sabbath is concerned, I have shared with you in detail Hebrews 3-4 which explains clearly there remains a rest for the people of God.
Here is one more for you, and though you turn your head from it, God's people will see and believe.

Luke 23:56
And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments,
and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
---SuzieH on 10/27/09

SuzieH - *For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

Since there is a definite article before the word 'commandment' what commandment is being viewed in this verse?

Hopefully you do not view it as the 4th commandment since nowhere in the NT or in the writings of the early fathers do we see anything that promotes the observance of the Sabbath.

John the Revelator!

Some believe after Paul was stoned, that he died and experienced 2Cor 12:1-6. However, scripture does not say that he died, and Paul states he could not tell how he experienced this event.

2Co 12:1-6
I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago,
(whether in the body, I cannot tell,
or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth,)

such an one caught up to the third heaven.
And I knew such a man,
(whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth,)

How that he was caught up into paradise,
and heard unspeakable words,
which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

Of such an one will I glory:
yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.

Acts 20:7-12 tells of a man named Eutychus who fell asleep and fell from the third storey and was dead. Paul brought him back to life. However, it does not say that he went to Heaven. He ate with them and then went his way.

You may want to try searching your question on the King James Version web site or the NIV site or any other version you may choose to read. I searched KJV site for awakened, awoke, woke up and "in heaven" and did not find the answer. I cannot recall anyone doing that. One of the disciples "went to sleep" when he was being stoned.

If anyone, Enoch according to scripture is the only one it could have been. He and Elijah are the only ones who have ever been taken physically from the earth supernaturally. We all know how Elijah was taken however concerning Enoch scripture simply reads "And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him". (Gen. 5:24) Everyone else mentioned in the chapter died.

Is this man in the Bible? You didn't say.

If not,
there's a singer, Chris Rice who sings he fell asleep and went to heaven. The song is Deep Enough to Dream.

Acts 7:60. I think this might be referring to Stephen who was stoned and 'fell asleep'.
---M.P. on 6/25/06

could it be Moses?
---eric on 6/22/06

Possibly the unspecified individual referred to by Paul in 2 Corinthians Ch 12 who went to the third heaven.

I give up, was it Ezekial? Was it John of Revelation? I just can't find who you are talking about in the words you use to describe this man.

Jacob - He fell asleep and dreamed of a ladder going from the earth to heaven and the angels of God ascending and descending on it(Genesis 28:12).
