This volume collects essays that Prof. Collins has written over two decades. The articles cover Jewish apocalypticism in several Hellenistic-Roman contexts. Various essays consider the Sibylline oracles; others apocalypticism and wisdom, as well as the book of Daniel (on which the author has also written the Hermeneia Commentary). There are also two new essays.
