Difficulties in the restoration community prompted post-exilic prophets to take new approaches to Yehud's troubles.

Earlier, classical prophets had promised a glorious, restored remnant, but post-exilic times were difficult. Attempting to encourage the disillusioned populace, post-exilic prophets shifted the promised glory to an undefined end time, an eschaton.

Some eschatologies take the form of an apocalypse -- most post-date the Hebrew Bible.

Features of apocalyptic writings include
- pseudonymous attribution to important figures of the past
- delivery by heavenly messenger in a vision or a dream
- message is symbolic, often bizarre, chronological, and coded
- predict a series of catastrophes
- morally dualistic, dividing humankind into two mutually exclusive groups; a few righteous individual, and the wicked majority.
- "God" depicted as an enthroned king.
- mythological motifs and imagery, especially the motif of a battle between God and primordial, chaotic elements.
- judgment of the individual dead, followed by everlasting life or punishment.

Apocalyptic writings within the Hebrew Bible include Second Zechariah, the Book of Joel, and, of course, the Book of Daniel.
