Revealing the Mysterion
The Use of Mystery in Daniel and Second Temple Judaism with Its Bearing on First Corinthians
Aims and Scope
Scholars largely agree that the NT term “mysterion” is a terminus technicus, originating from Daniel. This project traces the word in the Dead Sea Scrolls and other sectors of Judaism. Like Daniel, the term consistently retains eschatological connotations. The monograph then examines how mystery functions within 1 Corinthians and seeks to explain why the term is often employed. The apocalyptic term concerns the Messiah reigning in the midst of defeat, eschatological revelations and tongues, charismatic exegesis, and the transformation of believers into the image of the last Adam.

"The book is a good example of the continued usefulness of intertextuality and will be a fine addition to any theological library."
