-Eschatology-The “doctrine of the end” or “creation’s culmination” -Key to Christian Eschatology is hope, firmly convinced god will establish new order of justice, equity, peace & joy -Eschatology is effort to articulate this hope by reading the scripture & applying human reason to what is found there in an effort to understand how this hope should orient the present life of christians -Pop. Esch. Tends to emphasize the literal return of Christ & even the rapture of Christians & punishment of sinners in hell -Emphasizes 2 biblical text in exclusion to others: Daniel & Revelations -^^text are apocalyptic -Text are meant to be read literally -Eschatology in larger perspective from scripture perspective -1 Reserection of Christ makes reserection of all who are in Christ possible -Means death is not final word -2 God’s reign promises better future, a place for all the souls and bodies to live -Not heavenly existence but a recreation of heaven & earth

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
