Publisher's Description

The mythical story of fallen angels preserved in 1 Enoch and related literature was profoundly influential during the Second Temple period. In this volume renowned scholar Loren Stuckenbruck explores aspects of that influence and demonstrates how the myth was reused and adapted to address new religious and cultural contexts.

Stuckenbruck considers a variety of themes, including demonology, giants, exorcism, petitionary prayer, the birth and activity of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the conversion of Gentiles, "apocalyptic" and the understanding of time, and more. He also offers a theological framework for the myth of fallen angels through which to reconsider several New Testament texts—the Synoptic Gospels, the Gospel of John, Acts, Paul's letters, and the book of Revelation.

Author Bio

Loren T. Stuckenbruck is professor of New Testament and Second Temple Judaism at the University of Munich. His previous books include 1 Enoch 91–108 and The Fall of the Angels.

Editorial Reviews

Review of Biblical Literature
"As one would expect from Stuckenbruck, the studies in this volume are carefully considered, thoroughly researched, and salutary for comprehending early Jewish and Christian literature."

Journal of Jewish Studies
"For a number of years, Loren Stuckenbruck has been at the forefront of all that is good about the study of Judaism in antiquity. This has not simply been due to his brilliance— although that has been repeatedly demon-strated—but is also due in no small part to the humility with which he treats both the primary sources and his fellow scholars, the sensitivity with which he approaches often difficult topics . . . and the respect and grace he displays to a variety of religious traditions. These qualities are clearly and amply demonstrated throughout this volume."
