Paul, John, and Apocalyptic Eschatology offers fresh studies by leading New Testament scholars. It considers Paul’s use of tradition, his views on Christian life in the light of mysticism and eschatology. It also discusses the identity formation of the “Johannine community” and the role of “exaltation” in the Fourth Gospel. The focus on apocalyptic eschatology is broadened by studies on the reception of Pauline eschatology, the dating of Revelation, and chiliasm. The collection is complemented by a study on the text of John 3:13 and one on the coinage of the name “Ambrosiaster.”

Ceratothoa retusa (Schiœdte & Meinert, 1883) is redescribed from the lectotype (here designated) collected from Mozambique, and the range is extended to include the Gulf of Suez in the Red Sea. Ceratothoa retusa is distinctive within the genus with a manifestly small head deeply immersed into pereonite 1, which has prominent, but variable, projecting anterolateral margins. Ceratothoa retusa has a tropical and subtropical Indian Ocean distribution, extending from eastern Africa (and now the Red Sea) eastwards to northern Australia and Indonesia. The only known hosts are the halfbeaks, Hemiramphus far (Forsskål, 1775) and H. robustus Günther, 1866 (Hemiraphidae).
