The Greek Apocalypse of Baruch (3 Baruch) in Hellenistic Judaism and Early Christianity by Daniel C. HarlowThis volume represents the first comprehensive study of the Greek Apocalypse of Baruch (3 Baruch), one of the most neglected of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha. Harlow discusses such introductory issues as text, genre, setting, and function. He carefully examines the chief critical issues in the study of this fascinating document, including the literary integrity of the work and its original Jewish or Christian authorship.
Despite the fact that 3 Baruch is one of the major early Jewish apocalypses, it has been relatively neglected in modern scholarship, probably since 3 Baruch is one of the most difficult works to comprehend and classify. Its content differs significantly from that of other writings of the same genre, as the book preserves syncretistic ideas and tendencies which are combined in unique ways. The worldview, the message, and the very textual structure of 3 Baruch are enigmatic in many respects.
