What Calvin Says About Eschatology

Eschatology is the study of the doctrine of "last things" (from the Greek eschatos, meaning "last"). This study is normally subdivided into individual (or personal) and general (or cosmic) eschatology. The former examines the phenomenon of death and the intermediate state, as it applies to individuals. The latter studies those events which are to occur at the close of human history; it includes the millennium, the general resurrection and judgment, and the eternal state.
