The word Paradise is found in the Bible three times.
2 Corinthians 12: 1-4
1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
Luke 23:43 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise..
Rev 2:7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
Note: 2Co 12:2: Due to the similar wording of 2Co 12:2 (“caught up to the third heaven”) and 2Co 12:4 (“caught up into paradise”), it appears as though the third heaven and paradise are synonymous. According to Jewish tradition, the third heaven, or God’s dwelling place, was thought to be the highest of three heavens.
