Resumen

VAN WYK, Barry J.. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.4, pp.1-9. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i4.5296.

The sentence 'to rule with him in the heavenly world' (Eph 2:6) as example of an eschatological highlight in the letter to the Ephesians: The viewpoint in this article is that the above-mentioned statement in the letter to the Ephesians can be seen as an eschatological sentence of extraordinary value. In view of different eschatological viewpoints from the past, it can be stated that this sentence is an example of eschatology not only for the future, but also for the present. It is understandable that there is a close link between eschatology and mission. The meaning of theosis (deification), a concept from the Eastern churches' theological debate, underlines the need for a present eschatological consciousness that has significance for the future of church and faith. Believers can in this way escape from the destructive lust that is in the world, and may become partakers of the divine nature.

Palabras clave : Eschatology; Christian eschatology; Theosis; Missional; Realised future.
