This collection of essays explores the variety of views on eschatology in the New Testament - analyzing it book by book - as well as in some related documents. The authors treat different aspects of eschatology, exploring the history of research, as well as the multiple dimensions of eschatological issues, the variety, depth, mystery and problematic nature thereof. As such this volume offers a comprehensive view of the intricacies, differences, similarities and possibilities that arise when the issue of eschatology is addressed. The centrality of the eschatological function of Jesus Christ becomes evident, but also the multiple ways in which this message was interpreted and applied by the early Church.Contributors:Cilliers Breytenbach, Ulrich Busse, Pieter G.
