ESCHATOLOGICAL JUDGMENT IN THE BOOK OF ECCLESIASTES
MetadataShow full item record
Some scholars deny the existence of the concept of judgment in the book of Ecclesiastes while others affirm it. Those who attest it are divided about the kind of judgment the book refers to. While some think of a divine eschatological judgment, others reject it and suggest opinions such as undefined judgment or death. The analysis of Eccl 3:16-17; 11:9; 12:13-14 can induce one to conclude that the concept of the divine judgment is attested in the book of Ecclesiastes as a future event which guarantees hope that injustice will not last forever on the earth because God will eradicate it by bringing an impartial judgment.
