Product Description

Dr. Court follows his studies in the Book of Revelation by investigating the probability of a continuing Johannine apocalyptic tradition. He brings together three strange texts in Greek from later periods, linking them with a Coptic manuscript. None of the Greek texts has been published in recent years, and they have never been published together or associated in studies of Christian apocrypha. Dr. Court supplies the text of the Greek manuscripts, with English translations, introductions and detailed explanatory notes. This study is set in the context of a discussion of Christian views on the future and the afterlife, timely for the start of a new millennium.

Publisher's Description

This original and unusual book investigates a continuing Johannine apocalyptic tradition, represented in three strange Greek texts that are also linked to a Coptic manuscript. None of the Greek texts has been published in recent years, and they have never been published together or associated in studies of Christian apocrypha. John Court, well known for his studies on Revelation, supplies the text of the Greek manuscripts, with English translations, introductions and detailed explanatory notes that set the texts and their ideas in the context of Christian views on the future and the afterlife.
