[Eschatology.]

Published in German.

In historical, exegetical and hermeneutical studies, the authors of this work interpret New Testament statements about finality as opposed to everything which is temporary. At the same time, the various eschatological concepts shed light on basic theological decisions. In all of these texts, the relationship between eschatological concepts and the Christ event is the key factor. The understanding of time and history in view of the end of these, the question of the resurrection and the last judgment, the final reconciliation, communion with God’s community as well as of the current dynamic eschatological existence are subjects which are associated with this. Against the backdrop of religious and tradition history, these studies deal with the individual, universal and cosmic dimensions of eschatology and in doing shed light upon their theological significance.
