1 - 2 weeks availability
A New Reading of the Animal Apocalypse of 1 Enoch is the most comprehensive theological commentary on this important second-century BCE Jewish apocalypse to date, laying out the purpose and methodology of this Enochic allegory and using this as the basis for a new commentary on the whole text, presented here in a fresh translation. Against other interpretations that focus on Israel and its institutions, Daniel Olson argues that the promise of universal blessing in the Abrahamic covenant is presented in the Animal Apocalypse as the governing dynamic in a sacred history that begins and ends with humanity in general. The authentic Jacob/Israel will appear in the end times and be the catalyst of universal salvation
Daniel C. Olson, PH.D. (2010) is currently a Lecturer in Religious Studies at St. Mary's College, Moraga (CA). He has published numerous articles and monographs on 1 Enoch, including Enoch: A New Translation (BIBAL, 2004).
