Antichrist Theme in the Intertestamental Period by G.W. Lorein

Antichrist Theme in the Intertestamental Period

Part of the Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha Supplement S. Series


Antichrist Theme in the Intertestamental Period by G.W. Lorein

What are the antecedents of the 'Antichrist' figure and its associated themes in Jewish literature prior to the New Testament? G.W. Lorein offers texts and translations of all the relevant passages, together with a discussion of their meaning and significance. He concludes that the 'Antichrist' theme arises in different strands within this literature, but ultimately has its sources in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. In its scope and detail, as well as in many of its conclusions and its general synthesis, The Antichrist Theme in the Intertestamental Period surpasses previous scholarship on this very important aspect of New Testament and early Christian thought. This is volume 44 in the Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha Supplement series.
