comment What is the Biblical basis for the belief that there are humans in heaven now?
This verse does not explicitly state that those saints went to heaven after their resurrection. You have to assume such.

@LeeWoofenden: I guess we'll chalk it up to your translation of the Greek.

comment Did Jesus need to die, or would mere shedding of blood have been sufficient?
"Indeed, it was St. Thomas Aquinas who not only explained transubstantiation but also provided for the first time the word for it." - I'm pretty certain that's not accurate. St. Hugh of Victor, who lived from 1096-1141 (i.e., before Aquinas), used the term first, or at least before Aquinas did.

comment Does Paul ever actually quote Jesus anywhere?
Reluctant_Linux_User: Paul didn't have to write Acts. The OP asked, "Does Paul ever actually quote Jesus anywhere?" In the cited passage of Acts, Luke (the supposed author by many) is writing down what Paul said, and Paul is speaking what Jesus said to him, so Paul is indeed quoting Jesus.
