Item Description...
Overview
The five chapters of this volume, written by four different authors, together investigate the ways in which early Christians appropriated Jewish apocalyptic material. An introductory chapter surveys ancient perceptions of the apocalypses as well as their function, authority, and survival in the early Church. The chapter also raises important issues about the way modern scholars view apocalyptic thought. The second chapter focuses on a specific tradition by exploring the status of the Enoch-literature, the use made of the fallen-angel motif and the identification of Enoch as an eschatological witness. Christian transmission of Jewish texts is a topic whose significance is more and more being recognized, thus chapter htree analyses what happened to 4, 5, and 6 Ezra while being copied and edited within Christian tradition. Chapter four is devoted to regional developments of apocalyptic traditions, particularly by sectarian Christian circles in Egypt. The fifth and last chapter studies the apocalyptic perception of history, especially Daniel's vision of 70 weeks, as used and adapted by early Christian authors.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Scholars cringe!  May 26, 2000
When evidence comes to light that maybe we don't know EVERYTHING about the gospels scholars, like attack dogs they tear apart, discredit, or out and out LIE to the public to keep there dogma.This book happens to be a very in-depth source of information. it wasn't the easiest read unless you are a theology major some passages do not make sense to the layperson.Anybody who has studied the bible knows the gospels aren't without mistakes and rewrites by scholars and this book helps us know more about the religon that changed the world!
