Richard A. Horsley surveys responses in Second Temple Jewish literature to the rise of Hellenistic and Roman empires, discovering in a range of apocalyptic writings the traces of a coherent movement of defiance, critique, and resistance to tyranny. Revolt of the Scribes breaks new ground in the study of apocalyptic origins and in our understanding of Jewish life in the Greco-Roman world.
