3rd Heaven – 2 Corinthians 12

So what the heck is the third heaven in 2 Cor 12:2?

Thanks to my old friend Vernon McGee who you can still catch on The Blue Letter Bible, I have the answer.  1 – the sky, 2 – space, 3 – heaven we normally think of (well at least me).

The rest of the passage is interesting as well. 2 Cor 12:3-5
2Cr 12:3 And I know that this man-whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows-
2Cr 12:4 was caught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell.
2Cr 12:5 I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses.

It’s possible Paul, who is talking about himself here, experienced this when he was stoned. The timing is right, but that is conjecture?

Acts 14:6 But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country,
Acts 14:7 where they continued to preach the good news.
Acts 14:19 Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead.
