The Jewish Apocalyptic Heritage in Early Christianity
James C. VanderKam, William Adler
Fortress Press - Religion - 286 pages
The question of apocalyptic influence on Jesus and early Christianity is again strongly contested. The issues connected with this question include terminology, genre, historical reconstruction, sectarian self-definition, and many others. This book provides a fresh assessment of the nature and significance of early Christian appropriation of Jewish apocalyptic material.
