This chapter begins with a review of what New Testament writers say about the resurrection of Christ. It discusses the meaning of eschatology, and Jesus’ future coming — his Parousia. It analyses the individual aspect of salvation in the form of the redemption of the body, and the belief that in the final days, God will regather the nations into a unit.
