Författare: Fritz W. Röcker.
In der vorliegenden Arbeit zu den eschatologischen Abschnitten 1Thess 4,13-5,11 und 2Thess 2,1-12 geht Fritz W. Röcker zunächst der Frage nach, welche traditionsgeschichtlichen Wurzeln der Bezeichnung 'der Mensch der Gesetzlosigkeit' (2Thess 2,3) / 'der Gesetzlose' (2Thess 2,8) zugrunde liegen. Dabei stellt sich heraus, dass der Begriff 'Belial' im Alten Testament, in ?Qumran’, den atl. Pseudepigraphen und im Neuen Testament mit den Attributen versehen ist, die mit dem griechischen Wortfeld 'Gesetzlosigkeit' verbunden werden. Des weiteren forscht der Autor nach urchristlichen Überlieferungen, die den eschatologischen Vorstellungen in den Thessalonicherbriefen zugrunde liegen könnten. Er kann zeigen, dass die Überlieferung, die Mt 24 zugrunde liegt, auch diejenige der Thessalonicherbriefe gewesen sein muss. Der/das Katechon wird mit dem Verkündiger des Evangeliums / dem Evangelium identifiziert.

7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray.

He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Illustration by Gustave Doré for John Milton’s Paradise Lost. The Christian tradition has stories about angelic beings cast down from heaven by God, often presenting the punishment as inflicted in particular on Satan. Commentators have attributed Satan’s rebellion to a number of motives, all of which stem from his great pride. Satan and his angels rebelled against God in heaven, and proudly presumed to try their strength with his. Satan still hoped to get the victory by subtlety“.

Michael the Archangel“, Frederick Holweck wrote: „St. John speaks of the great conflict at the end of time, which reflects also the battle in heaven at the beginning of time. Revelation 12 concerns an actual event in the pre-mortal existence of man. Parallels are drawn to the passage in Isaiah 14:4-17 that mentions the „son of the morning“ that had „fallen from heaven“ and was „cast down to the earth“. In verse 12 of this passage, the Hebrew word that referred to the morning star was translated into Latin as Lucifer. In the War Scroll, according to Menahem Mansoor, the angels of light, who are identified with Michael, the prince of light, will fight in heaven against the angels of darkness, who are identified with Belial, while the Sons of Light fight the Sons of Darkness on earth, and during the last of the seven battles described in the scroll will come and help the Sons of Light win the final victory.
