    As a standalone tweet, it certainly doesn’t. When placed within Wright’s argument that going to heaven when you die is not the end of the story, that there is still the resurrection and new heavens/new earth to come, it has more coherence (whether you like/agree with Wright or not, at least it makes sense then)

        The original tweet is a sound bite from one of Wright’s lectures, which of course went on to explain his views on eschatology further. It sounds clever spoken, because many people assume after the end of this world comes heaven.
        Definitely not the best excerpt to tweet, as it makes no sense out of context. Which makes it a great modern example for a hermeneutics teacher, showing how context is important.
