The problem of this dissertation is to discover whether there is a distinctive theological vocabulary in selected Jewish apocalyptic writings. The apocalyptic writings to be treated are (1) Isiah 24-27, (2) Zachariah 9-14, (3) Daniel 7-12, (4) The Book of Enoch, and (5) The Book of Jubilees. Apocalyptic writings grew after the fall of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. Israel was faced with a choice between religious transformation and religious extinction. Two forms of theological hope, the Messianic and apocalyptic which are closely interrelated, were introduced and became components of Judaic religious faith. The distinctive vocabulary of Old Testament apocalyptic is the vehicle of the Judaic expression of theological hope and influenced Judaic religion and possibly the New Testament community [TRUNCATED]
