Excerpt: ... CHAPTER III THE APOCALYPTIC MESSIANISM OF THE PHARISEES SECTION I. THE BISE OP APOCALYPTIC As The legalism of pharisaism was the outgrowth of the Codes, so the idealism of its apocalyptic was the outgrowth of prophetism. The forerunner of apocalyptic must be sought in what had been a regulative thought of the prophets, the Day of Jehovah--that time when the God of Israel would exercise his right and inflict terrible punishment upon all those who had not kept his law. What this Day had been to Israel before Amos may be conjectured from the national belief in Jehovah as a God certain to defeat all rivals; it was to be a day of joy and peace for a conquering Hebrew nation.1 With Amos and the great prophets who succeeded him the Day became one in which Israel was to be punished by Jehovah for its sins.
