In my opinion, it is less about hermeneutics and more about biblical theology or the theological motif that runs throughout both the OT and NT. Yes that means reading the Bible w/ continuity rather than discontinuity. The best eschatology is one that coheres with a sound protology that will inevitably flow into a spectacular display of redemptive history climaxing at the cross and culminating all parts of the story. In essence then, eschatology is only as good as the biblical theological storyline it completes. If it is isolated in a vacuum away from the storyline of Scripture, it is nothing more than flights of fancy that will inevitably lead to misunderstandings about the purpose of God’s movement towards the end. What say you?
