  • Re: PBB - Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Milestones

    Dear M.J., My main question about this was what group of centuries do you believe that the Greek Apocalypse of Ezra was written in. The reason is because I want to see if it is an early Christian text or not. You helpfully sorted out the Ezra books, including: [quote] Jewish Apocalypse of Ezra ( Apocalyptic Esdras ) written c. 100 A.D. was highly influential

    M.J., One of the curious things about the apocryphal book of the Greek Apocalypse of Ezra is what period it was written in. It was written apparently based on 4 Esdras (written in the first century or later), and apparently listed in the canon of Pat. Nicephorus (in c. 850 AD), but it's harder to be more specific. For example, it appears either a re

    Thanks for your welcome, MJ. By Biblical apocryphas, I meant the books that are included in some Bibles and that are considered apocryphal. Let me give some examples: The Vulgate included 4 Esdras and the Letter to the Laodecians (self-attributed to Paul but perhaps actually written by Marcion or another forger), but they were put in an Apocrypha section

    Jim and others, Let me list below Old Testament - themed apocryphal writings or pseudigrapha that I've found that scholars consider to have Christian influence, interpolation or authorship. I am listing the scholars' rough estimates for dating first (They are all A.D.), followed by what I found for their use by early Christians. Perhaps you will find
