Beschreibung

This volume explores the issue of apocalypticism in the Scrolls; how the notions of the 'end', Messianic expectation and eternal life affected the Dead Sea sect, influenced Judaism and filtered into Christianity.

'Extemely helpful (especially for undergraduates).' - Dr R.W. Bell, Nottingham University'This book will be invaluable for students and scholars alike, clarifying as it does the relationship between the Enochic, sapiential, and the Qumran traditions while discussing several central issues concerning the origin and problem of evil, eschatological expectation and war, messianism, the afterlife and the heavenly realm. - Theological Book Review`As an introduction guide, this book serves its purpose well in engaging the reader with many of the most important texts for studying DSS apocalypticism. His isolation of those features which are representative of the apocalyptic community will provide a helpful point of departure for others working in this area. This book provides a welcome addition on a major topic in the DSS and early Judaism'`

Klappentext

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls 50 years ago revealed Jewish apocalypticism that was before unknown. The scrolls chronicled life in an apocalyptic community, whose members believed that the end of the world was nearing. When the end did not occur, the community then believed they were already living the afterlife.

John J. Collins explores the issue of apocalypticism in the Scrolls within a Jewish context and how the notions of the "end," Messianic expectation and eternal life affected the Dead Sea sect. This is the first and most up-to-date study of the Dead Sea community since the scrolls were discovered.



Zusammenfassung
Since the photographs of the Dead Sea Scrolls were released in 1992, there has been an explosion of interest in them. This volume explores the issue of apocalypticism in the Scrolls; how the notions of the 'end', Messianic expectation and eternal life affected the Dead Sea sect, influenced Judaism and filtered into Christianity. Collins' volume provides a valuable and accessible introduction to the interpretation of the Scrolls, which is an informative addition to the series examining the major themes of the Scroll texts.
