In Jewish literature before the New Testament, no instances of the developed antithesis between these two ages seem to be found, but from the way in which it occurs in the teaching of Jesus and Paul it appears to have been current at that time.
Without Jewish precedent, the New Testament links with the parousia as preparatory to it, the pouring out of the Spirit, the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, the conversion of Israel and the preaching of the gospel to all the nations.
That the typically Jewish "woes" bear no direct relation to the disciples and their faith is not a sufficient reason for declaring the prediction of them unworthy of Jesus.

The purpose of this paper is to describe that eschatology and to try to put it into its setting in the early church.
When we read this description, we immediately notice that the eschatology is basically typical Pharisaic-rabbinic Jewish eschatology, namely, that at the end of this age there will be a final judgment in which the righteous will be rewarded and the wicked punished.
Revelation, for example, also uses eschatology in the service of ethics in that the thrust of the book is to support values of endurance and faithfulness in the church in the light of the parousia and its concomitant reversal of values.

Under the influence of this revived Jewish eschatology, Christianity was in danger of falling back into the position of the earlier apocalyptists.
The effects of this relapse into a pre-Christian eschatology are evident in the tone and temper of the Revelation itself.
This change was natural enough; for when it became necessary to readjust the Christian outlook to the indefinite postponement of the second advent and judgment, the Church had to organize itself as a permanent society living the life of the redeemed people of God in an unredeemed world.

 The Quest of the Historical Jesus: Chapter 15
But the eschatology occupies far too important a place in the tradition of the preaching of Jesus to be explained as a mere symbolical mode of expression.
It was, therefore, the later eschatology which set the Son of Man on the throne of His glory and prepared "the twelve thrones of judgment for the disciples." The historian ought only to admit such of the sayings about bearing rule in the Messianic Kingdom as can be interpreted in a spiritual, non-sensuous fashion.
It is true that his conception of the eschatology was primitive and that he applied it not as a constructive, but as a destructive principle of criticism.

 ENG 251-Tutorial 3--Jewish Apocalypticism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
The Greek word eschatos means "the last, the final" and "eschatology" is a technical term referring to a culture's set of beliefs and practices around the issue of the end of human life and its belief or nonbelief in an afterlife.
The Jewish belief in a heroic king who would restore Israel's might is the result of Judah's exile and decline over a succession of imperial conquests, Greek and Roman, and its nostalgia for the Davidic kingship.
The discovery of these texts, with their frequent apocalypticism, their call for sanctity in a life of common property, and their repudiation of the Jewish establishment's collaboration with Roman imperial rule, helped to contextualize the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, whose words and deeds in the gospels are frequently reminiscent of his Essene predecessors'.

Paul ascribes to him an apokalupsis as he does to Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:6,8); his manner of working and its pernicious effect are set over against the manner in which the gospel of the true Christ works (2 Thessalonians 9-12).
Paul does not treat the idea as a new one; it must have come down from the Old Testament and Jewish eschatology and have been more fully developed by New Testament prophecy; compare in Daniel 7:8,20; 8:10,11 the supernaturally magnified figure of the great enemy.
In fact even the conception of a single last enemy does not occur in pre- Christian Jewish literature; it is found for the first time in Apocrypha Baruch 40:1,2, which changes the general conception of 4 Ezra to this effect.
