Abstract

THE EPISTLE OF BARNABAS AND THE FINAL REBUILDING OF THE TEMPLE BY JOHN J. GUNTHER Alfred, Maine, U.S.A. Throughout the reigns of Trajan and Hadrian Jewish Messianic- apocalyptic hopes burned brightly 1). The empire would be over- thrown (4 Ezra 12:3-30; 2 Baruch 39:3-40:4) and the Temple with its sacrifices restored (2 Bar. 68:5-7; cf. 32:2-4; 44). Solomon ZEITLIN 2) believes that apocalypticists fomented the Messianic revolt in 115-17. There was immense cruelty and loss of life in Cyrene, Egypt and Cyprus 3). Stewart PEROWNE 4) writes: Under Loukuas, or Andreas, the Jews of Cyrene saw themselves as the spearhead of a "Return": they would leave Cyrene forever, and march back to Palestine, at the head of a victorious legion of their co-religionists in Egypt. The Jews from ... Mesopotamia would join them. A new Zion would arise from the ruins of the old. During Trajan's Parthian campaign Mesopotamian Jews rebelled, but Quietus ruthlessly suppressed them and those in Palestine who 1) L.
