how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

I think that is a great point Mark. Where I’m at on this right now is that the lake of fire is the same in Rev 20 as it is in Rev 14, 19, and is the same as Gehenna in Matthew and the prophets. That is, that the “final” judgment in Rev 20 is not at the end of time, but at the second coming “in that generation” at the end of the old covenant age/world in AD70. Per Daniel 12, that’s when the dead were raised.
