Heidelberg Catechism
Lord’s Day 22
57. Q. What comfort does the resurrection of the body offer you?
A. Not only shall my soul after this life
immediately be taken up to Christ, my Head,
but also this my flesh, raised by the power of Christ,
shall be reunited with my soul
and made like Christ’s glorious body.
58. Q. What comfort do you receive from the article
about the life everlasting?

A. Since I now already feel in my heart
the beginning of eternal joy,
I shall after this life possess perfect blessedness,
such as no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man conceived
— a blessedness in which to praise God forever.
