QUESTION: What is meant by
the Apocalyptic literature? (L. S.,
Valdosta, Ga.)
ANSWER: The term “Apoca
lypse” or “Apocalyptic” comes
from a Greek term “Apokalypsis”
which is a combination of two
forms—“apo” meaning “off” and
“kalyptein” which means to cover.
In this sense the term “Apoca
lypse” would have reference to
a literature which “uncovers” or
“unveils” certain secrets of the
universe. This term was particu
larly popular among Christians.
In Jewish or general circles it has
been used loosely to connote any
literature that tends to unveil to
the human mind what will hap
pen in the future, such as the
Resurrection of the dead, the com
ing of the Messiah, or, in general
any eschatological literature. A
book of the Hebrew Canonical
Bible which is considered apoca
lyptic is~the Book of Daniel; al-

though in much of the official
writings of the Hebrews we find
the prophets telling of visions
they have seen of the past or the
future. In those books, which are
not an official part of the Hebrew
Bible, we find quite a great deal
of such literature. The rabbis in
the literature of the post-Biblical
period and the Middle Ages either
composed or gathered a great deal
of such literature.

QUESTION: Why is the period
of mourning for a parent set for
12 months? (R. A., Savannah. Ga.)
ANSWER: According to the
Talmud the soul is judged for 12
months after death. The heirs of
the deceased thus observe a per
iod of mourning for these 12
months offering charity, devotion,
prayer, etc. to help obtain a
favorable judgment for the soul.
After the 12th month the judg
ment is given and the soul finds
its eternal resting place. Twelve
months seem to be a period of
judgment for other things,’ as
stated by Rabbi Akiba in the Tal
mud, such as the judgment of Job,
the duration of the flood of Noah,
the duration of the plagues in
Egypt, etc. The Talmud goes so
far as to say that for 12 months
the soul rises and descends and
after the 12th month the body is
gone entirely and the soul doesn’t
descend any more.
