Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of reference books from extra Biblical sources. It includes inscriptions, Apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, and books of Jewish authors. Ruling of Inscriptions in Hellenistic Samaria presents the practices in the ruling of texts by scribes in Hellenistic Samaria. Under investigation are forty-five fragments of inscriptions written in Aramaic and some inscriptions in paleo-Hebrew script. The Apocalypse of Paul (Coptic version), written in the late second or early third century by a Gnostic author (possibly a member of the Valentinian school), portrays Paul as an apocalyptic hero. The Dead Sea scrolls include references and allusions to historical persons and events: these are the subject of Eshel's study. Josephus' passage on Jesus is much disputed: authentic, interpolated, or basically authentic with retouchings by Christian scribes.

Keywords: Apocrypha; extrabiblical sources; hellenistic Samaria; pseudepigrapha
