In theology it is known as the study of Eschatology. The study of future or final things. How will God wrap-up, or conclude history? Some of the subjects are: Christ’s second advent, the antichrist, the great tribulation, the battle of Armageddon, the future of Israel, the millennium, the rapture, the resurrection, the final judgement, the new heavens and the new earth, etc.
Genesis 1 – 11 is not a narrative of actual historical events as we usually define history (something that actually happened in time and space).
