Chapter Summary

This chapter is based on the author's paper The Pseudepigrapha in Christianity at the 1976 annual meeting of the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas (SNTS) at Duke University. The author is convinced that there is a great deal to learn about Christianity from careful study of the "pseudepigrapha," and that in most instances it is premature to distil from these writings information about pre-rabbinic Judaism before they are thoroughly examined for their significance as witnesses to Christian interest and activities. The author's discontent centers on three areas of study which seem to be inadequately pursued in much current investigation of the pseudepigrapha: (1) Comparative Linguistic Analysis; (2) The Role of the Pseudepigrapha in Christian Thought; and (3) Formulation of Satisfactory Hypotheses Regarding Origins and Transmission of Pseudepigrapha.

Keywords: pre-rabbinic Judaism; The Pseudepigrapha in Christianity
