John Wesley's Eschatology

The term "eschatology" means the study of last things. This includes what we call today "end-time Bible prophecy," but is not limited only to that subject in the narrow sense in which most moderns today envision it, that is, as only events immediately preceding the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Eschatology must not be understood as mere speculation about the end-time, I repeat, for it includes the doctrines of the Bible, not only on the return of Jesus Christ, but also on the immortality of the human soul, the intermediate state between our physical death and Christ's second advent, the resurrection of the dead, the last judgment, and the eternal state of men and angels, sometimes referred to as the new heaven and the new earth.

The following articles explain John Wesley's eschatology, as best that we can understand it.
