The author analyzes what Jesus expected to take place before the coming of the kingdom of god. He shows that Jesus’ teaching about the atoning power of his death as Messiah can be traced back to the Old Testament and the ancient Jewish belief in a Great Tribulation that would precede the coming of the Messiah and the return of the lost tribes of Israel.
