This book examines the eschatology of Jesus by evaluating his appropriation of sacred traditions related to Israel's restoration and addresses the way in which Jesus' future expectations impinged upon his understanding of Jewish society. It breaks new ground by considering Jesus' expectations regarding key constitutional features of the eschatonthe shape of the people of God, purity, Land and Temple. Bryan demonstrates that Jesus' anticipation of coming national judgement led him to use Israel's sacred traditions in ways that differed significantly from their use by his contemporaries.
