Second Kings 2:11

This website has been moved to:

2 Kings 2:11: Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

John 3:13: No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.

Second Kings says that Elijah ascended into heaven by a whirlwind, but John says that no one has ascended into heaven other than Jesus.

The Hebrew word which is translated as 'heaven' in the first verse, shamiyim, can simply mean the sky1.
