Product Description

This book focuses on a particular Old Testament pseudepigraphon - the Book of Jubilees, which is presented as a revelation that Moses recieved at Mount Sinai, although it actually consists of a rewriting and interpretation of the biblical narrative from Genesis 1 to Exodus 16. The study traces the appropriation of the Book of Jubilees in early Christian sources from the New Testament to Hippolytus and beyond, and more specifically focuses on the reception of Jubilees 8-9. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach based on detailed analysis of primary sources, much of which is seldom considered by New Testament scholars, and explores the neglected topic of ancient geographical conceptions. By studying geographical aspects of the work, the author is able to relate the Book of Jubilees to both Old and New Testament traditions bringing important new insights into several Christian texts.
