Orientierung durch Orthodoxe Dogmatische Erläuterung



The Holy Bible is a book filled with prophecies. Some have been fulfilled, and others haven’t. The ones that have not been fulfilled, we refer to as “eschatology”.

The interpretation and understanding of those prophecies is not always feasible, because they have been written in such a way, that they can be perceived in detail only at the time of their fulfillment. Those who wish to indulge ahead of time, must have a very good knowledge of the Christian faith and of the Holy Bible, because the Holy Bible interprets itself and it is inopportune to make assumptions that are irrelevant to the Christian tradition based on which those prophecies were written.

It is because various interpreters do not observe this last point that they are led into a multitude of heresies and misinterpretations and to a faulty perception of the true meaning of what is written. 

The articles below are studies on fulfilled prophecies, and naturally within the framework of Orthodox Tradition, keeping in mind at all times the interpretation that arises from within the Holy Bible itself.

In many of these studies, we shall also observe the refuting of various heretical approaches to prophecies, thus proving the baselessness of their conclusions.

Although the Church may not have dogmatized extensively on eschatological issues (with the exception of very few, basic ones), our Orthodox tradition offers us the framework and the key to understanding most prophecies, which God has arranged so that they can be revealed to those who meticulously and with Orthodox prerequisites approach the Divinely inspired word of the Holy Bible.
