Synopsis: Christian Stettler shows how the expectation of the last judgment developed from the classical prophets to Jesus. Deeply rooted in ancient royal ideology and world-order tradition, the various expectations of a last judgment are ultimately unified by the hope that YHWH would establish his kingdom by means of a universal judgment. While early Jewish movements and texts agree that only those who are €˜just€™ according to the Torah will be part of this kingdom, the question of who the €˜just€™ are and how a person becomes €˜just€™ is answered in different ways. From here E. P. Sanders€™ influential €˜covenantal nomism€™ theory is critically analyzed. €“ John the Baptist and Jesus are part of the apocalyptic movement. A new element in Jesus€™ teaching is that he expects himself and his death to play a decisive part in the last judgment.
