The present volume discusses the earliest Christian views on eschatological opponents and their backgrounds in contemporary Judaism. It treats the rich variety of early Christian speculations on the subject and shows that, within this variety, a continuity with Jewish speculations is to be discerned.Part One of this book treats the early Christian passages of the period up to Irenaeus that contain speculations on the coming of an eschatological opponent. Part Two offers a survey of Jewish expectations that formed the basis for the Christian speculations discussed. After the General Conclusion the book finishes with an extensive Bibliography and an Index.The book is of interest to any student of early Christian eschatology and the continuity between early Christianity and contemporary Judaism.Table of ContentsList of Abbreviations Preface 1 The Subject and the History of Research 2 False Prophets, False Messiahs, and Chaos: Mark 13 Parr and 1 Apoc.
