When readers of the Bible turn its pages from Chapter 4 of Malachi to Chapter 1 of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, they pass not only from the Old to the New Testament, a fact of which they are well aware, but they also pass over a number of centuries, a truth to which most readers give little thought. Between Malachi and the appearance of John the Baptist there is an interlude of about four centuries. Certain scholars in the past have characterized these centuries as the "silent centuries," and have relegated them to oblivion, not considering them of much significance for Jewish history or for an understanding of the history and theology of the New Testament. In a larger sense than is often realized, these centuries are the key for the understanding and adequate comprehension of the life and literature of the New Testament. While the setting for both the Old and New Testaments is the Mediterranean world, yet the intellectual, social, and religious backgrounds of both Testaments is different. The fact is that the atmosphere in which the New Testament is written is in large part the product of the period between the Testaments, and no amount of study of the Old Testament can solely explain it. On the other hand, no survey of the life of the Roman era is able to give the biblical reader explanations of many New Testament phrases and ideas. - Introduction.

What is �The Intertestamental Period: A Climate of Change� all about? Also known as the Silent Years of the Bible, the four-hundred-year period between the Old and New Testament was all but silent. The actions of Alexander the Great, Antiochus Epiphanes, Justin Maccabees, Herod the Great, Cleopatra, Marc Antony Julius Caesar, and many others set the stage for the New Testament events to take place and to be written down for future study and life application. Many shadows of the things to come prophetically spoken about in the Old Testament were found fulfilled at the onset of the New Testament. This book overflows with history, religion, politics, literature, but it also has intrigue, murder, rebellion, with a little bit of insanity mixed in. The events that took place during this era were not considered �in simpler times� or boring by any means. You will discover that The Intertestamental Period was An Optimum Environment for God�s Ultimate Plan.

The Antichrist Theme In The Intertestamental Period

What are the antecedents of the "Antichrist" figure and its associated themes in Jewish literature prior to the New Testament? Here, Lorein offers the texts and translations of all the relevant passages, together with a discussion of their meaning and significance. He concludes that the "Antichrist" theme arises in different currents within this literature, but has its sources in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. In its scope and detail, as well as in many of its conclusions and its general synthesis, this book surpasses previous scholarship on a very important aspect of New Testament and early Christian thought.

The picture of the warrior Messiah depicted in the Old Testament as a future redeemer figure matches that of Jesus as the warrior in the New Testament, fighting against the cosmic evil power. The warriors struggle takes place in a cosmic, heavenly dimension rather than earthly, utilizing the word from his mouth as the only weapon to defeat the demons and the evil hosts. Strong unity and continuity of the motif are detected within the Old and New Testaments, as well as between the Testaments.

Called to Be God's People is an introduction to the Old Testament designed for those who wish to have a comprehensive guide to the contents, theology, and important passages of the Old Testament. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is especially designed for those within that tradition and others who seek a guide to the canonical books of the Old Testament that consciously presents the Scriptures' message of Law and Gospel as well as the traditional Christian messianic understanding of Moses and the Prophets that points to Jesus as the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel. This book is ideal for university students and other Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of the background, content, and message of the Old Testament and its importance for Christian faith and life. It not only introduces important background information on each book of the Old Testament along with a general discussion of its contents and theology, but it also contains analyses of major passages within the Old Testament. Key terms, study questions, a glossary, a gazetteer of Old Testament people and places, maps, tables, charts, and sidebars make this book a useful and handy reference as well as a textbook. A concluding chapter on the centuries between the Old and New Testaments overlaps with a similar treatment contained in the New Testament volume in this series, Called by the Gospel, allowing for a smooth transition to the study of the rest of the Christian Scriptures.
