Q #16:  What is the third heaven mentioned in 2 Corinthians 12:2?

A:  Paul was speaking, perhaps about someone he knew or about himself, and refers to a person caught up into the "3rd heaven".

"The third heaven" is "the city of God"--the place where we conceptualize God living.  The first heaven is the sky.  The second heaven is outer space.

That's it for now.  Hope you enjoyed this quick one!
