Chapter Summary

This chapter answers the question (does 4Q390 qualify in a similar sense as a text tied to the same founder, Jeremiah the prophet, even in his absence?) through undertaking a thorough analysis of 4Q390 in two parts. In the first part, Dimant's assertion that 4Q390 is another copy of the Apocryphon of Jeremiah C is scrutinised in the course of the following three investigations: her claim is subjected first, to a re-consideration of the material reconstruction of the text; second, to a brief survey of the handling of verbal future expressions in 4Q390. 4Q390 is more accurately designated as a redux of the Second Temple Apocalypse that appears in the Apocryphon C, "Second Temple Apocalypse II". The chapter produces a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between 4Q390 and the other manuscripts of the Apocryphon of Jeremiah C.

Keywords: 4Q390; Apocryphon of Jeremiah C; ideological distinction; Second Temple Apocalypse Redux; theological distinction
