Apocalyptic Thinking in Early Judaism : Engaging With John Collins' the Apocalyptic Imagination

Apocalyptic Thinking in Early Judaism : Engaging With John Collins' the Apocalyptic Imagination - image 1 of 1

About this item

Thirty years after the first appearance of Collins' seminal work, scholars of the apocalyptic in Jewish literature discuss its influence and the generation of research it has sparked--particularly as the Dead Sea Scrolls were being published. At the 2014 meeting of the International Society of Biblical Literature in Vienna, they held a panel and asked Collins to respond to the presentations. The 10 essays consider such topics as a dwelling place of demons: demonology and apocalypticism in the Dead Sea Scrolls, situating the Aramaic texts from Qumran: reconsidering their language and socio-historical settings, origins of evil in Genesis and the apocalyptic tradition, eschatology and time in 1 Enoch, and comparative eschatology: Paul's letters and the Dead Sea Scrolls. He responds that the end is not yet. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
