Stefan Beyerle, Dr. theol. (1997), is "Privatdozent" of Old Testament studies at the "Evangelisch-Theologische Fakultät" of the University at Bonn. He has written a book entitled Blessing of Moses in the Book of Deuteronomy (de Gruyter, 1997), co-edited Law and Ethos in the Old Testament (Neukirchener Verlag, 1999), and published various articles.
"Beyerle not only summarizes the results of the study and of every chapter-and even of some of the sections in a chapter-but he also gives an English abstract of his work that will help the English-speaking reader to find his or her way through this important and interesting [...] volume. A detailed bibliography and three indices complete the volume, which will become an indispensable reference book for everyone doing research on apocalyptic texts." - Jutta Krispenz, in: Review of Biblical Literature (2006)
This monograph studies the theological motivations behind certain Jewish apocalypses by focusing on the mighty acts of God recounted in these writings. In particular, the work examines the various depictions of God's acts and attributes as a means for learning about the individuals and groups responsible for the transmission of these apocalypses. Three prominent motifs, among others, receive attention here: theophanies (e.g., I Enoch 1:3-9; 25:3; 77:1; Daniel 4:10, 20; 7:9-10, 13-14), portrayals of the resurrection (e.g., I Enoch 102 - 104; Daniel 12:1-3), and interpretations of the (Babylonian) Exile in connection with the "new creation" (e.g., Qumran, Jubilees, Pseudo-Philo). Apocalypticism provides a framework for various theologies. Generally speaking, God is shown as the most prominent figure in these dramas of eschatological events. The authors of these writings typically held that their only deliverance could arise from the imminent arrival of an otherworldly eon ushered in by the power of God.
