Was there a development in the eschatology of Paul? This article examines 2 Corinthians 5:1-10, highlighting three issues arising from the passage that are relevant for this discussion on the development in Paul's eschatological thought. First, the author reflects on Paul's personal relationship to the return of Christ. Next, it considers the time of the receipt of the spiritual body. Third, it looks at the intermediate state of deceased Christians. A comparison is further made with the teaching of 1 Corinthians 15 and 1 Thessalonians 4.
