Jesus’ parable of the weeds emphasises the separation of humanity into two groups at the Final Judgment. The synoptic Gospels are unequivocal about their destiny: the destiny of the righteous is heaven where God rules, the destiny of the wicked is hell. Donald explores the meanings of heaven and in particular hell, concluding that hell involves permanent separation from God, and ultimately destruction. In the new heaven and earth there will be nowhere that does not acknowledge Jesus as Lord.
