Disclosure and revelation, and the converse, curiosity and study, are features not only of the apocalyptic complex, but of normative Judaism as well. The observant Jew recites twice a day:

And these matters that I command you today should be placed upon your heart, rehearse them with your children, and speak of them while sitting in your house, when walking on the road, when you lie down and when you arise. And bind them as a sign upon your hand, and they shall become a symbol between your eyes, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

[Deut. 6:6–9]
