Apocalypticism in the Bible and Its World
A Comprehensive Introduction
Apocalypticism is not a peripheral topic in biblical studies. It represents the central, characteristic transformation of Hebrew thought in the period of the Second Temple. It therefore constituted the worldview of Jesus, Paul, and the earliest Christians, and it is the context in which the New Testament books were written. In this volume, Frederick Murphy defines apocalypticism while discussing its origins, where it comes into play in the Hebrew Bible, and how it relates to Jesus and the New Testament.

"An ideal textbook for college courses. Its distinctive strength lies in its exposition of the role apocalypticism plays in the New Testament." --John J. Collins, Yale Divinity School
