Correlation between apocalyptic writing and the Palestinian Judaism of the Second Temple is studied, with the Pharisees being the most vivid example. Apocalyptic elements were of great importance among the Pharisees, so Paul the Apostle, as a Pharisee, could have been familiar with the apocalyptic tradition and involved in apocalipticism as a social movement.
