Chapter Summary

Since Friedrich Schnapp in 1884 in his dissertation the thesis to prove tried that the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs are an originally Jewish Scripture, which was later used and interpolated by Christians, have the test XII a permanent place in collections of Jewish Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament and in essays on Judaism in the centuries to get to the beginning of our era. It has also tried to use the ethics of testing XII for a better understanding of the early Christian ethics, insonderheit the exhortation of Jesus. This chapter shows that the use of parallels from the test XII to explain the early Christian ethics brings many complications. The Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs are a Christian for many years of traditional and copied text. The original text of the chapter is in German.
