Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the significance of eschatology in the writings of Paul and Seneca. In Seneca the only thing comparable with this is what he writes about cyclic destruction and return. Although such an expectation is of course entirely different in content from Paul's expectation of the salvation to come, it is at least an expectation which concerns the whole of things and is not restricted to the individual. Nevertheless the fate of the individual in and after death remains of prime importance for Seneca. The chapter shows that great care must be taken when drawing parallels. Naturally it is not always without value to assemble, as is done in many commentaries, quotations from ancient writers, including Seneca, which correspond with texts in the Pauline epistles.

Keywords: eschatology; God's salvation; Paul; Pauline epistle; Seneca
