In his work, the apocalyptist develops the concept of a dualistic cosmology: the existing κόσµος shaped by the Roman Empire and its leading representatives is coming to an end. Soon it will be replaced by a new κόσµος, in which a new sphere of salvation and a new time of salvation will be prepared for the faithful Christians, which differ diametrically from the present cosmological reality as the actually worthwhile goal of the Christian’s own life of faith. With this conception, the cosmology of the fourth gospel, which is shaped by the idea of a coexistence of light and darkness, of salvation and disaster, is expanded by the aspect of a futuric-eschatological soteriological completion of the κόσµος realizing itself in a new creation, i.e., temporalized and thus ultimately eschatologically completed.
