I dem Chistus palam rediturus est, ut iudicet vivos et mortuos. Thus our fathers confess in the third article of the Augsburg Confession. They repeat therewith the words of the Apostles' Creed. Except for corresponding sentences in the Nicene and Athanasian Creeds and brief, withal plain and forceful statements in the discussions of the Large Catechism on the Second and the Third Article of the Creed and the explanation of the Seventh Petition, there is in the whole Book of Concord only one single article which expressly deals with eschatology. This is Article XVII of the Augsburg Confession and its Apology.
