By David E. Aune
Mohr Siebeck, Germany
482 pages, Illustrated, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4"
This book contains a collection of twenty of David E. Aune's essays on the subjects of apocalypticism, the Apocalypse of John, early Christian prophecy and early Christian magic. He explores contextual relationships of the Apocalypse to apocalyptic literature from Qumran and Palestinian Jewish apocalyptic and investigates discipleship, narrative Christology, genre and the problem of God and time.
David Aune presents an intertextual reading of the Apocalypse of John and analyzes the form and function of the proclamations to the seven churches and interpretations of Rev 5 and 17. Essays on early Christian prophecy deal with charismatic exegesis in early Judaism and early Christianity and the relationship between Christian prophecy and the messianic status of Jesus.
