What is the Judgment Hall?
a room or office in the palace of the Roman governor where causes were tried and justice administered, John 18:28. The Jews declined to enter it when they were prosecuting their murderous purpose against the Redeemer, lest they should be defiled by an approximation to the person of a heathen. The Judgment-seat, Matt 27:19, was an elevated place in the hall of judgement which sentence was pronounced. Judgment, Breastplate of. See Breastplate. Judgment of Urim. See Urim. Judgment, Day of. Matt 10:15, that important day which is to terminate the present dispensation of grace, when time shall be no more and the eternal state of all men shall be unchangeably fixed. That such an event is necessary to vindicate the justice of God, Luke 16:25, and that such a day is appointed, is abundantly evident. Eccl 11:9; Matt 12:36; Acts 17:31; 2 Thess 1:7-10; Heb 9:27; 2 Pet 2:9: 2 Pet 3:7; 1 John 4:17. That Jesus Christ will officiate as Judge is also evident. Matt 25:31-32; Matt 26:64; John 5:22; Acts 17:31: Rom 2:16; 2 Cor 5:10. That the judgment will be universal appears from Eccl 12:14; John 5:28-29; Rom 14:10-11; 2 Cor 5:10; Rev 20:12-13. That its decision will be final and irreversible, admitting the righteous to the joys of Christ's kingdom and dooming the wicked to outer darkness and eternal despair, appears from the foregoing Scriptures, and also from Matt 26:14-46; 1 Cor 15:52-57; 1 Thess 4:14-17; Heb 6:2.
