Early Christianity about the notions of time and the redemption of the soul

Abstract:
Early Christians and the authors representing them fathomed that the human soul, despite being created, transcends historical time; from a limited existence (peculiar to it as a created entity) it is apt to progress to the time of God, and thus to be redeemed. The argument of this paper is that they held such a conviction because of a genuine belief in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit within, and not because of a need to console themselves for disappointments in connection with eschatological promises, as some researchers suggested.
