Overview

The Book of Jubilees is a mid-second century BCE pseudepigraphon which presents itself as the divine revelation that Moses received on Mt. Sinai and wrote down by dictation. In this text, Scott (religious studies, Trinity Western U., British Columbia) traces the appropriation of the Book of Jubilees in early Christian sources from the New Testament to Hippolytus and beyond, with particular focus on the reception of Jubilees 8-9, an expansion of the so-called Table of Nations in Genesis 10 (I Chronicles I). For New Testament scholars. No subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
