Probably the best known alleged “resident” in heaven is the famous beggar Lazarus! Countless millions have heard the story of “Lazarus and the rich man,” much embellished, and with impassioned attacks against the unfeeling, insufferable hauteur of the rich and their disdainful contempt for the plight of the poor. The famous parable of Luke 16 seems to say, to many millions, that Lazarus died and went to heaven, but that the rich man died and went to hell! But is this what it really says? Jesus said, “No man hath ascended up to heaven” (John 3:13). Did Jesus make a mistake?
