Reflection Questions
  • Describe briefly the socio-political context within which Jewish messianism and mission expressed itself. What mission significance is there in the Jewish loss of (or the inability to gain) secular power?


  • List several resources outside the Bible for knowing what transpired in history. Why is it important to have extrabiblical sources?
