The Antichrist Theme in the Intertestamental Period


T&T Clark 2003

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


What are the antecedents of the “Antichrist” figure and its associated themes in Jewish literature prior to the New Testament? Lorein offers the texts and translations of all the relevant passages, together with a discussion of their meaning and significance. He concludes that the “Antichrist” theme arises in different currents within this literature, but has its sources in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible.

In its scope and detail, as well as in many of its conclusions and its general synthesis, this book surpasses previous scholarship on a very important aspect of New Testament and early Christian thought.
