Eschatology in the Bible and in Jewish and Christian Tradition by Graf Henning Reventlow

Eschatology in the Bible and in Jewish and Christian Tradition

Part of the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement S. Series


Eschatology in the Bible and in Jewish and Christian Tradition by Graf Henning Reventlow

This is the fourth volume in the series of collaborations between the Department of Bible in Tel Aviv University, Israel, and the Faculty of Theology in the University of the Ruhr, Bochum, Germany. This symposium, held in Bochum in 1995, discussed a topic important for both communities of believers, starting with the Bible and tracking its role through the different stages of the respective tradition-histories. This time the theme was eschatology. The participants engaged in a lively discussion (from the Jewish side) on messianism and Zionism, Qumran, Mishnah and Kabbalah, and (from the Christian side) on the Bible, recent Protestant ethics and systematic theology. The volume concludes with the report of a panel discussion on the essence of eschatology in Jewish and Christian thinking: is it a spiritualized idea or a material expectation for the world?
