Die Eschatologie der jiidischen Gemeinde im neutestamentlichen Zeitalter (Hildesheim: Georg Olms, 1966 ), pp. 63-64. 38 After the Thousand Years (4 Ezra 7; 2 En. 3 But, notes Fiorenza, John's model does not really fit in with any apocalyptic model, since for him the thousand years do not constitute the limit of messiah's reign with the saints (as, for example, in 4 Ezra 7), nor do they signal a passive world-sabbath (as in 2 En. 33). 4 The force of all these points may perhaps be added together as follows: on literary analysis, John's description of the thousand year reign of the saints with Christ (Rev.

Further, as Bousset admits, John is following (in Rev. 7-10) a more or less standard model which has come out of Ezek. 38-39 (cf.
