Product Description

That the earliest followers of Jesus wrote poetry, hymns, and odes is evident already in the New Testament. This volume The Earliest Christian Hymnbook is a translation of The Odes of Solomon, a collection of early Christian hymns or odes.

Some are obviously Christian, others perhaps Jewish. Yet, the beauty of all the poems is a tribute to the depth of spirituality in early communities of Christians, some of whom were perhaps also Jews or converted Jews.

Professor Charlesworth (editor of the massive two-volume OT Pseudepigrapha offers an inviting introduction and a translation of this work that is both engaging and true to the original languages. The Index of Ancient Sources provides the reader access to the wide range of references in the notes.

Also, in conjunction with the release of this book a musical performance of The Odes of Solomon has been made available and is listed directly below (Or see CBD Stock Number: CD77029)
