R. H. Charles interprets the words of the twelve patriarchs, a pseudepigraphical work which offers insight on the spiritual perspectives and dialogue between members of the twelve tribes of the Old... More > Testament. The testaments are famed today for containing apparent references to the arrival of Jesus Christ, as well as parallels with the Gospels. Robert Grosseteste, a 13th century theologian and philosopher who discovered the texts, accused Middle Eastern scholars of concealing the writings given the apparently prophetic references to Jesus' arrival on Earth. A fine companion to Biblical readings, this book brings the scholarly skills of the author together with the ancient passages of wisdom. We gain an impression of life in the ancient world, and how humans employed faith in the Lord in the battle against sins and the throes of chaotic passions.

The Book of Baruch is a Bible pseudepigrapha; a deuterocanonical work attributed to Baruch ben Neriah, the scribe of the prophet Jeremiah. The Assumption of Moses is a Jewish apocryphal work... More > concerning hidden prophecies that Moses revealed to Joshua prior to the latter inheriting his leadership of the ancient Jews. Together these works constitute typical examples of popular Biblical texts which are extra-canonical; most Christian and Jewish groups do not regard their contents as true.

This edition contains a lengthy, explanatory introduction by W. O. E. Oesterley, and the well-regarded translations of Bible scholars R. H. Charles (for Baruch) and William John Ferrar (for Moses).< Less
