1 Enoch: The Hermeneia Translation by James C. VanderKam, George W. E. Nickelsburg

By James C. VanderKam, George W. E. Nickelsburg

1 Enoch used to be a huge and well known textual content in old Judaism, good attested one of the manuscripts at Qumran, and a key piece of the puzzle of Jewish origins. George W. E. Nickelsburg and James C. VanderKam have now revised their translation along side their book of the entire volumes on 1 Enoch within the Hermeneia observation sequence. this is often the single English translation of one Enoch that takes into account all the textual information now on hand within the Ethiopic model, the Greek texts, and the useless Sea Aramaic fragments–texts no longer to be had, for instance, in general variants of the useless Sea Scrolls.
