The purpose of this dissertation is to discover, delineate, compare, and explain "The Eschatology of the Fourth Gospel and the Revelation". On the one hand, these two works are considered to be diametrically opposite, not only according to grammar, style and vocabulary, but also in their theological conceptions. The two writings are conceived to be poles apart in all their doctrines and more especially in the conceptions concerning the "Last Things". On the other hand, the Fourth Gospel and the Revelation have many points of contact, not only as to provenance, readers, and date, but also there are curious similarities in their doctrines. Even in the presentation of the Future State, there are peculiar points of contact. Likewise, there are features of the eschatological teaching peculiar to each of these two documents. The contribution of this study lies in the detailed comparison of the eschatological conceptions of the Fourth Gospel and the Revelation and in the explanation of the basic differences, similarities, and peculiarities of the doctrine of "Last Things" discovered in them.
