TMOT 8055 Apocalypses and Apocalyptic Literature (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The word apocalypse comes from the Greek word for 'revelation.' This course will survey ancient Jewish and Christian apocalypses and representative writings from the apocalyptic literary genre taken from the Old Testament, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Pseudepigrapha, the New Testament, and later Jewish and Christian writings. Our examination of the diverse expressions of apocalypticism will assist us in our task of understanding the conceptual worldview and theological perspective of ancient apocalypses and apocalyptic literature.
