Chapter Summary

This introduction chapter gives information about other chapters in the book. The first part of the book is concerned with the Book of Enoch, and although, with one exception, it has been published in this millennium, it reflects a long-standing interest in the problems connected with the interpretation of this important pseudepigraph. Against the background of the idea that there was a degree of opposition between Ben Sira and the authors of the early Enochic writings the author explored the relevance of the Qumran wisdom literature, particularly 4QMysteries and 4QInstruction, to our understanding of the Book of Enoch.

Keywords: Book of Enoch; Qumran wisdom literature
