    Abstract:
    The apocalypse literary genre creates a reader expectation of the apocalyptic worldview. The Book of Jubilees uses the apocalypse genre to express a worldview that diverges significantly from the cluster of views typically conveyed by the apocalypse genre. This paper focuses on one aspect of the genre and the worldview. The Book of Jubilees uses features of the apocalypse genre on the spatial axis, including the origins and function of angels and demons, but departs from the apocalyptic worldview by denying their significance for Israel.
