Here an international team of scholars draws out the implications of the newest scholarship on the nature of apocalypticism for the variety of New Testament writings. Each entry presses the boundaries regarding the nature of apocalypticism in application to a particular New Testament author, revealing early Christianity, its Christology, cosmology, and eschatology as expressions of tendencies in Second Temple Judaism.
