2.3.1 Textual History of 4 Baruch

(4,029 words)

Author(s): Doering, Lutz
Part of 2 Baruch/Jeremiah - 2.3 4 Baruch/Paralipomena Jeremiou 2.3.1.1 Introduction 2.3.1.1.1 TitleIn several important Greek manuscripts,1 the title of the work is τὰ παραλειπόμενα Ἰερεμίου τοῦ προφήτου “The events omitted from/the omissions of Jeremiah the Prophet.” The same title is also used, in Coptic translation, for the History of the Captivity in Babylon (or Coptic Jeremiah Apocryphon; 2.6.1).2 This title seems to have been chosen in order to emulate and adapt the title of LXX-Chr (I.20.3.1), though similar book titles are also mentioned in T. Job 40:14; 41:6. In Ethiopi…

2.4.1 Textual History of the Letter of Jeremiah

(3,875 words)

Author(s): Doering, Lutz
Part of 2 Baruch/Jeremiah - 2.4 Letter of Jeremiah 2.4.1.1 Introduction 2.4.1.1.1 TitleThis short work of seventy-two verses carries the title ἐπιστολὴ Ιερεμιου “Letter of Jeremiah” in some of the major Greek uncial codices (LXXA and LXXB; 2.4.2),1 a title mirrored by the Bohairic (2.4.6) and the Syriac (2.4.3) versions. Some Greek manuscripts, however, lack the name of the prophet (thus LXXQ and LXXV). In the Latin codices (2.4.4), in which the Letter of Jeremiah is attached to the book of Jeremiah, we find it sandwiched between the notation incipit exemplum epistolae eiusdem “(here) …

2.1.1 Textual History of 1 Baruch

(5,542 words)

Author(s): Doering, Lutz
Part of 2 Baruch/Jeremiah - 2.1 1 Baruch 2.1.1.1 Introduction 2.1.1.1.1 TitleIn a number of Greek manuscripts, including LXXA and LXXB (but not LXXS, where it is missing, see below, 2.1.1.3.1 and 2.1.2), the book of Baruch is inscribed with Βαρουχ “Baruch,” rarely supplemented by τοῦ προφήτου “the prophet (gen.)” (as in LXX106, similarly in Bohairic); other Greek manuscripts feature the title λόγοι Βαρουχ τοῦ Νηριου “The Words of Baruch, son of Nerias” (LXX613). In Latin Bible manuscripts, the name of the book can be liber Baruch “The Book of Baruch” (thus VLL and the thirteenth-centu…

8.1 Textual History of Jubilees

(8,292 words)

Author(s): Doering, Lutz
Part of 8 Jubilees 8.1.1 Introduction 8.1.1.1 Title Jubilees goes by several names in the languages in which it has been transmitted. In Christian Greek sources, the book has been known as “the Little Genesis” (ἡ Λεπτὴ Γένεσις),1 the “Details of Genesis,”2 “Jubilees”3 or, by some, as “Apocalypse of Moses.”4 In Syriac (8.4), it is once referred to as “the book of the Hebrews that is called Jubilees (ܝܘܒܝܠܝܐ).”5 In Gəʿəz (Ethiopic; 8.6) the book is called either “Divisions” (ኩፋሌ) or “Pertaining to the Divisions of the Times” (ዘኩፋሌ ፡ መዋዕል). Its Hebrew title cannot be established with ce…

2.2.1 Textual History of 2 Baruch

(4,026 words)

Author(s): Doering, Lutz
Part of 2 Baruch/Jeremiah - 2.2 2 Baruch/Syriac Apocalypse of Baruch 2.2.1.1 Introduction 2.2.1.1.1 TitleIn the only complete copy of 2 Baruch (preserved in manuscript S7a1, the famous Codex Ambrosianus), the title of the composition is “The Book of the Apocalypse of Baruch, the son of Neriah” (ܟܬܒܐ ܕܓܠܝܢܗ ܕܒܪܘܟ ܒܪ ܢܪܝܐ). It is debated whether this is the original title of the work or whether it was prefixed by a scribe. The latter is more likely. The genre label “apocalypse” is unattested before Rev 1:1, and even there it still functions as a…

Sabbath

(2,991 words)

Author(s): Otto, Eckart | Doering, Lutz | Hollender, Elisabeth | van Henten, Jan Willem | Volp, Ulrich | Et al.
[German Version] I. Old Testament In the preexilic period, Sabbath (שַׁבָּת/ šabbāt) meant the day of the full moon; from the Exile on, it denoted a weekly day of rest. The origins of this day of rest go back to the early days of Exile. The earliest laws regarding the preexilic day of rest appear in the Book of the Covenant (Exod 23:10) and the cultic code in Exod 34:18–23, 25f. (v. 21) (Law and legislation: III). In the Book of the Covenant, the commandment to ¶ observe a day of rest is part of the privilege law of YHWH that deals with setting apart the firstfruits and firstborn …
