Ben Wetherington takes a hard look at the Gospel texts and makes a thorough and critical assessment of Paul's eschatology. For each topic examined; the language of imminence, the dominion of God, the community of Christ, the Israel of God, the day of the Lord and the resurrection of the dead; he compares and contrasts Jesus and Paul. The result is an important contribution to our understanding of New Testament eschatology.
