Final Day

What is striking about New Testament passages that describe the final victory of Jesus when he returns is that they base this future triumph on the past death and resurrection of the Nazarene. His crucifixion and subsequent enthronement ushered in the “ last days ,” the final era of human history that will culminate inevitably in his ‘ parousia ,’ the resurrection of the righteous dead, and the judgment and punishment of his enemies.
