Theological Term of the Week: Eschatology

This week we begin a new heading: Words and Terms Describing the Study and Teaching of Last Things

This week’s term: Eschatology – The study of last things, that is death, judgment, heaven, hell, the return of Christ, the Millennial Kingdom, and the new heaven and the new earth.

Last week’s term: Free Moral Agency – Funk & Wagnall’s: “The power or capacity to act freely, i.e., without the constraint of the will.” Webster’s New International Dictionary: “Not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being; not necessitated by an external cause or agency; choosing or capable of choosing for itself as a free agent.” (Thomas Paul Simmons Systematic Theology 181)
