Apocalypse, from which apocalyptic is derived, means “revelation” or “disclosure.” It is a word that generally serves to characterize certain Jewish and Christian religious literature from approximately the years 200 B.C. to A.D. 100. True to its name, apocalyptic literature is preoccupied with the revelation, or disclosure, of future events taking place in the world. Prominent among these events are the arrival of the Messiah and the establishment of the kingdom of God. Consequently, a symposium volume dealing with the advent hope in Scripture and history must take account of the apocalyptic literature.
