  • John Calvin's Understanding Of Eschatology Analysis

    “Kingdom of God”, “the day of the LORD”, “the end of the world”, “the last judgment” and “a new heaven and a new earth.” These words are the image of eschatology, and eschatology is an important subject in the Bible. Even Donald K. McKim says that the theme of the Bible is the kingdom of God (McKim, 167). In the Gospel, Jesus taught about the kingdom of God in his whole life and ministry, and the kingdom of God is represented as “already, but not yet” (McKim, 170). John Calvin, a 16th century representative theologian, agrees with the eschatological idea of “not yet” rather than “already.” On the other hand, Joan M. Martin, a womanist Christian liberation ethicist, more emphasizes on the “already” side. According to the understanding of eschatology,…

However, most people do not fear this end as they will not live to see it. Instead, they fear what will happen to…

  • Eschatology: End Times

    Eschatology is the study of what is commonly referred to as the “end times.” This era in history was foretold by the book of Revelation in the New Testament. This field of study can have both good and bad come from it. An example of a good thing from it would be to recognize signs of Christ’s second coming and to let those signs strengthen one’s faith. A bad result that could be pulled from studying Eschatology would be a person attempting to pick a date for when Jesus comes back to retrieve all…
