Chapter Summary

The last quarter of the twentieth century saw the publication of new editions and translations of important texts, of new introductions and commentaries, of new collections of the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha in a number of different languages, of Greek and Latin concordances, of new journals and monograph series. This chapter examines some aspects of the interrelationship of the Levi traditions contained in Jubilees 30-32 and in the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs in the Pseudepigrapha, in the work now known as the Aramaic Levi Document, and in 4Q541 and 540. The relationship between the Testament of Levi and the Aramaic Levi Document has been variously assessed, as has that between the Aramaic Levi Document and Jubilees 30-32.

Keywords: Apocrypha; Aramaic Levi Document; Jubilees 30-32; Levi traditions; Pseudepigrapha
