 frontline: apocalypse!: primary sources: apocalyptic literature
The great prophets of Israel, such as Isaiah or Jeremiah, were primarily concerned with delivering the "word of the Lord," meaning oracles calling on the people to respond to divine direction.
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.

The period from the building of the First Temple by Solomon in 950 BCE to the Babylonian Captivity (586-515 BCE) and the period of the Second Temple from 515 BCE to 70 AD illustrates a Judaism centering on sacrifices and the priests offering the sacrifices.
The Biblical basis for this is Ezekiel 11:16: “…although I (God) have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them a small sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.” The Talmud (Megillah 29a) identifies the “small sanctuary” with the synagogue.
After the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE, the synagogue became the focal point of rabbinic Judaism.
