Traditionally, questions about  the reign of God, death and resurrection, God’ s judgment and eternal life, have belonged to eschatology, specifically as presented by Biblical scholars. At times, when eschatology has become a topic of debate, it has unfortunately, resulted in accusations and acrimony among scholars. Yet, the Bible is clear about what the end entails; whether that is towards the believer or non-believer. Furthermore, the relationship of theology and science on eschatology has hardly been a topic of discussion. However, in recent times, there have been serious attempts by modern scholars to find common ground between these two
seemingly diverse disciplines when it comes to eschatology.
