Enoch and Elijah were transferred, in my opinion, to the future, so that they could prophesy against the Antichrist. Another common opinion is that they were transferred to Paradise, where they await the time of the Antichrist.
Joseph died and his body was buried. He was not assumed into heaven.
Adam and Eve died, and their bodies were buried; they were not assumed into heaven.
Does Eccl.49:19 "above every living creature is Adam" , assert or imply that Adam was holier than Joseph who was buried and even Our Lady who was assumed but was still, nontheless, a "living creature"
or did the claim only hold true at the time it was written and was not including any who came later?
