Sanders, Paul and Palestinian Judaism (1977). Joshua Trachtenberg, The Devil and the Jews (1966). Apocalypse Nahum N. Glatzer A pocalypse (from the Greek apokalypsis, literally, to uncover, reveal) refers to divine revelation, especially with regard to the future of Israel and the world. The literature of the apocalyptic visions originated with the cessation of biblical prophecy and is in many respects its continuation.

Against the teleological arguments allegedly supporting theism, the atheist follows David Hume's classic refutations in his Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779) and holds, for example, that it is a mistake to think of the world-as-a-whole as if it were an artifact, and thus exhibits design by an intelligent being, since artifacts are no more inherently intelligible than the production of organisms by biological generation. The atheist will also adopt Hume's observation that the world bears no more witness to the existence of a creator than it does to a committee of designers.

This explains the numerous attempts made by Christians in the Middle Ages and later to outlaw and obliterate the Talmud. This kind of anti-Judaism was thus closely linked to the Christian anti-Semitic myth, by which the Jews were stigmatized as the betrayers and murderers of Christ; the Talmud was regarded as an expression of the Jewish persistence in this role, and Jewish devotion to the Talmud as an obstinate refusal to show repentance. Some modern writers have argued that Paul himself evinced anti-Judaism, but not anti-Semitism.
