You Found It! Now What Does ESKATON Mean?

ESKATON is a word meaning, “ending” or “the end” of something. More accurately, “ESCHATON” (not enough space on license plate, thus ESKATON instead), is a New Testament Greek word. If you have ever heard of the word “eschatology” – the study of last things, you now see they are related. Why I share it is because The Story we know as the history of the earth is coming to an end. Soon. And it is imperative you are on the right side of history if you would like to participate in the next chapter of The Story, that is, eternity.

I love the last lines from C. S. Lewis’s book, The Final Battle, as he describes how life will go on for the children after finding the real Narnia:

And as He spoke He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.

If you’d like to learn more, head over my main page, The Story is Ending, to catch up on some podcasts and the occasional blog post about this crucial time in earth’s history. I strongly believe not only do we humans find meaning in story — we find meaning in story precisely because we are part of a larger Story that had a beginning will soon have its ending.
