This book contains a collection of twenty of David E. Aune's essays on the subjects of apocalypticism, the Apocalypse of John, early Christian prophecy and early Christian magic. Several essays on the Apocalypse of John explore contextual relationships of the Apocalypse to apocalyptic literature from Qumran, Palestinian Jewish apocalyptic, Roman imperial court ceremonial, Greco-Roman revelatory magic and the social setting of the book. Other essays center on aspects of the content and interpretation of the Apocalypse itself by investigating such issues as discipleship, narrative Christology, genre, the problem of God and time, an intertextual reading of the book, the form and function of the proclamations to the seven churches (Rev 2-3), and interpretations of Rev 5 and 17. Essays on early Christian prophecy deal with charismatic exegesis in early Judaism and early Christianity, the relationship between Christian prophecy and the messianic status of Jesus, and the prophetic features found in the Odes of Solomon.Table of Contents Understanding Jewish and Christian ApocalypticFrom the Idealized Past to the Imaginary Future: Eschatological Restoration in Jewish Apocalyptic Literature (with Eric Stewart)The Apocalypse of John and the Problem of GenreFollowing the Lamb: Discipleship in the ApocalypseQumran and the Book of RevelationThe Influence of Roman Imperial Court Ceremonial on the Apocalypse of JohnAn Intertextual Reading of the Apocalypse of JohnThe Apocalypse of John and Palestinian Jewish ApocalypticThe Social Matrix of the Apocalypse of JohnStories of Jesus in the Apocalypse of JohnThe Form and Function of the Proclamations to the Seven Churches (Revelation 2-3)Revelation 5 as an Egyptian Enthronement Scene?Revelation 17: A Lesson in Remedial ReadingThe Prophetic Circle of John of Patmos and the Exegesis of Revelation 22:16God and Time in the Apocalypse of JohnCharismatic Exegesis in Early Judaism and Early ChristianityChristian Prophecy and the Messianic Status of JesusThe Odes of Solomon and Early Christian ProphecyThe Apocalypse of John and Graeco-Roman Revelatory MagicMagic in Early ChristianityIndex of Sources Index of Authors Index of Subjects
