10. Christian Eschatology

The future of the world and mankind.

The Nicaean-Constantinopolitan Symbol of Faith (the Creed), in the seventh, eleventh, and

twelfth paragraphs, contains the Orthodox Christian confession of faith in the future coming of

the Son of God to earth, the General (Last) Judgment, and the future eternal life.

Paragraph 7: And He is coming again with glory to judge the living and the dead; and His

Kingdom will have no end.

Paragraph 11: I look for the resurrection of the dead.

Paragraph 12: And the life of the age to come. Amen.

In the Divine economy there is a plan for the future until the end of the ages. And an inseparable

part of Christian teaching is composed of what the word of God tells us about the events of the

end of time: the Second Coming of the Lord, the resurrection of the dead, and the end of the

world — and then about the beginning of the Kingdom of Glory and. eternal life. The last part of

dogmatic theology thus speaks about the culmination of the great process whose beginning is set

forth in the first page of the book of Genesis.
