Introducing the Pseudepigrapha of Second Temple Judaism
This book introduces readers to a much-neglected and misunderstood assortment of Jewish writings from around the time of the New Testament. Dispelling mistaken notions of 'falsely attributed writings' that are commonly inferred from the designation 'pseudepigrapha,' Daniel Gurtner demonstrates the rich indebtedness these works exhibit to the traditions and scriptures of Israel's past. In surveying many of the most important works, Introducing the Pseudepigrapha of Second Temple Judaism shows how the pseudepigrapha are best appreciated in their own varied contexts instead of being read as mere 'background' to early Christianity or emerging rabbinic Judaism. Foreword by Loren T. Stuckenbruck.
