Apocalyptic Worldview in Judaism
Sunday December 9 2018 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In this lecture and the next, we will explore how the apocalyptic worldview came into being and why it was so important in the ancient world. We will first look at the way the Hebrew prophets dealt with themes of evil and hope, then see how these prophetic perspectives took on new forms in Jewish apocalyptic writings. We’ll also touch on one of the central concerns of early apocalyptic writings that remains valid today: Given that the world is unfair, what gives people the courage to live lives of integrity?
