Eschatology is the branch of theology, philosophy, and futurology concerned with the final events of history, the ultimate destiny of humanity - commonly referred to as the 'end of the world' or 'end time'.

Apocalyptic literature is a genre of prophetical writing that developed in post-exilic Jewish culture and is relevant for especially 1st century to modern day Christians, in particular the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation. 'Apocalypse' (Ἀποκάλυψις) is a Greek word meaning 'revelation', an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and can be known from study of the unveiling.

As a genre, apocalyptic literature details the authors' visions of the end times as revealed by Jesus Christ, and heavenly messengers and angels. An apocalypse (ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω meaning 'un-covering') is a revelation of something hidden. In religious contexts it is a revelation of future events - revealed to mankind in an era dominated by falsehood, misconception, and deception. In the Revelation given to John (Greek Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου, Apocalypsis Ioannou), the last book of the New Testament, the revelation John receives is that of the ultimate victory of good over evil and the end of the present age. People use the word apocalypse to refer to 'End Time' scenarios, or to the end of the world in general.
