Inaugurated eschatology

is a term used to describe the belief that the end times (or latter days) were inaugurated at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. In other words, Jesus’ bringing of the Kingdom of God has both a present and future aspects. Sometimes called already and not yet, it argues that the end is already here, but it has yet to be consummated. For example, Christians await the final resurrection where they will receive new bodies, yet in a sense, believers are already raised with Christ (Col. 3:1). Or, as believers await the final judgment, in a sense they have already passed through it, for there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:1)

 

 

Realized eschatology

 holds that the eschatological passages in the New Testament do not refer to the future, but instead refer to the ministry of Jesus and his lasting legacy Eschatology is therefore not the end of the world but its rebirth instituted by Jesus and continued by his disciples, a historical (rather than transhistorical) phenomenon. Those holding this view generally dismiss end times theories, believing them to be irrelevant. eschatology should be about being engaged in the process of becoming, rather than waiting for external and unknown forces to bring about destruction,
