Abstract

VENTER, Pieter M.. The confluence of 'wisdom' and 'apocalyptic' in 4QInstructionDie samevloeiing van 'wysheid' en 'apokaliptiese denke' in 4QInstruction. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.2, pp. 1-9. ISSN 1018-6441.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ids.v49i2.1922.

A confluence of sapiential and apocalyptic thought is found in 4QInstruction. This article investigates this phenomenon in 4QInstruction by studying the two main genres used in the book, indicating the central role of the term raz nihyeh [the existing secret] in the book and presenting a cognitive analysis of this term in 4Q416 2 III. The thesis is proposed that an extended embodied, chronistic and spatial view of the world is found in this passage.
