about

"Apocalypse" is a Greek word meaning "revelation", "an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling." As a genre, apocalyptic literature details the authors' visions of the end times as revealed by a heavenly messenger or Angel.

This first volume in the new series Apocalyptic Literature focuses on early ‘apocryphons’ composed in the aftermath of a cataclysmic event in the ancient world - the Roman destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in AD 70. Volume 1 contains the essential Christian works from this period:

The Apocalypse of Abraham
The Sheep and the Goats
The Book of Daniel (Two Versions)
The Olivet Discourse
Revelation (Four Versions)

Included in this anthology are three chapter and verse commentaries on the two most important prophetic apocalypses in this collection, Revelation and The Book of Daniel. There is also an image gallery showcasing the best examples of apocalyptic art from the last two thousand years.
