... In the OT God is depicted as a Judge who will reward people according to their deserts—with wrath on the evil and blessings on the righteous (Deut. 10: 18; 32: 41). In the NT, while people's attitude to Jesus is itself a self-judgement (John 3: 18), there are also suggestions of a future judgement (e.g. Matt. 25: 3 ff.; Rom. 2: 15 f.) in which the evil and the righteous will be for ever separated. The criterion of judgement is spelt out in the * parable of the sheep and the goats (Matt. 25:...

... At different times philosophers have expressed their concern with the nature of judgement in different terms: the investigation may be called the theory of content, of belief, of propositions, of representation, of sense, etc. depending on which aspect of the matter is taken to predominate. The central problem is that of understanding the capacity of the mind to form, entertain, and affirm judgements, which are not simply strings of words but items intrinsically representing some state of affairs, or way that the world is or may be. The affirmation of a...

Martha Cooper (“Decentering Judgment” in Judgment Calls , edited by John M. Sloop and James P. McDaniel , Boulder, 1998 ) writes that from a postmodern perspective, “At best, the values and first principles serving as grounds for judgment appear to be partial…. At worst, such grounds for judgment seem only canonized preferences that secure the interests...

...cannot be excluded from Old Testament concepts of judgment. Agents in God’s judgement. Such a judgment may be carried out not only by God alone, but by God’s angels ( Ps 78:49 ) and a messiah may also be part of the agency. These ideas were especially prominent in the Dead Sea Scrolls where even members of the community were also involved in the process of judgment in various ways (e.g., 1QpHab 5:4; 1Q8:18–19). New Testament. From these multifaced conceptions, the idea of a final and definitive judgment according to deeds of a human being, as it was...
