THEO 373 - Person & Mission of Jesus: Eschatology

This course explores New Testament understandings of some of the titles of Jesus, such as Christ, Lord, and Savior, and investigates the development of Christological doctrine in the early centuries of Christianity.

Introduction

Christian eschatology is concerned with death, an intermediate state, Heaven, hell, the return of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, the end of the world, the last judgment, a new heaven and a new earth (the World to Come), and the ultimate culmination of all of God's purposes.
