Apocalypse Nahum N. Glatzer A pocalypse (from the Greek apokalypsis, literally, to uncover, reveal) refers to divine revelation, especially with regard to the future of Israel and the world. The literature of the apocalyptic visions originated with the cessation of biblical prophecy and is in many respects its continuation.

Later his attitude was misconstrued and Christian anti-Semitism arose, casting the Jews in the role of the people of Satan and giving rise to popular legends about the Jews as child murderers, well poisoners, and desecrators of the Host. In this view, anti-Judaism does not necessarily lead to anti-Semitism. Paul, it is argued, was against Judaism only because he regarded it as an inadequate solution to the human dilemma, which could only be tackled by a radical salvationist doctrine. Judaism, in Paul's view, was too hopeful in thinking that the Torah could guide people into virtuous living.

In Pauline Christianity, however, instead of a long succession of teachers of gnosis of equal status, there appears a unique figure on whom the salvation of all mankind depends at a unique point in human history. The betrayal and killing of this figure by the Jews thus focuses their role in a mythic drama in such a way as to brand them as the unique instrument of Satan and sets the stage for a form of anti-Semitism far more imbued with loathing and metaphysical disgust than anything in Gnosticism.
