Allison and the Apocalyptic Jesus

Allison believes in an apocalyptic Jesus. One of the arguments he used for the apocalyptic Jesus included the argument dealing with John the Baptist because he believed that if John the Baptism was apocalyptic and Jesus was baptized by John, then it would make sense for Jesus to also believe in what John believed in. Also, Allison makes a case that since the early church is apocalyptic and John is apocalyptic then the only connection between them is Jesus and it would make sense that He was also apocalyptic.  Allison also refutes the argument that Wisdom literature and Apocalyptic teachings are mutually exclusive of each other by arguing that Jesus can be concerned with the present world while also being concerned with the end of time.
