Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the translation of 70:1 in view of the role this passage has played in the question of the identification of Enoch as Son of Man. A case can be made for the originality of either the text of the majority of the manuscripts or for that represented by Abbadianus 55, and in the end a decision between the two readings is likely to depend on a consideration of wider issues relating to the interpretation of this section of 1 Enoch. The comments in the chapter are based on knowledge of Abbadianus 55, Ethiopian Manuscript Microfilm Library (EMML) 1768 and 2080. According to the author, the use of different expressions for Son of Man does not shed any light on the problem of the relationship between 1 En. 70:1 and 71:14, and the text-critical problem of 70:1 can be resolved on the basis of the normal criteria.

Keywords: 1 Enoch; Abbadianus 55; Ethiopian Manuscript Microfilm Library (EMML); Son of Man
