 frontline: apocalypse!: primary sources: apocalyptic literature

A future-looking sense of history was born, and we see these ideas especially in some of the proto-apocalyptic writers from the end of the prophetic tradition, such as the "Third Isaiah" writer and the compilers of Ezekiel.
Apocalyptic thinking was extremely influential in Jewish tradition between the second century BCE and third century CE; however, the disastrous failure of the lltwo revolts against Rome (in 70 and 135 CE, respectively) caused the radical political dimension of apocalyptic tradition to undergo some key changes.
