What is the Second Coming of Jesus?

The Second Coming of Jesus refers to the future event when Jesus Christ will return to earth in glory to fulfill the promises of Scripture. This event is a central and highly anticipated belief in Christian eschatology, symbolizing the culmination of God’s plan for salvation and the establishment of His kingdom.
