Creeds 8: Last Things
In our final installment of this series on the Creeds, we look at the last two clauses of the Creed which, together with the clause about Christ's return in glory to judge the living and the dead earlier, constitute the basic Christian teaching concerning the end of the age. We explore how the "end times" or "last things" (from the Greek ta eschata, hence "eschatology") have already begun with the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how the Christian hope is to share in his resurrection glory, and the finality of his unadulterated reign on earth.
