Christian authors wrote some pseudepigrapha and did not necessarily always mention explicitly Christian topics. Very well written and methodological. Also, the font used in the book is gorgeous.

Christian authors wrote some pseudepigrapha and did not necessarily always mention explicitly Christian topics. The Old Testament pseudepigrapha are ancient quasi-biblical texts inspired by the Hebrew Bible. Although frequently mined as Jewish background by New Testament specialists, they were transmitted almost entirely in Christian circles, often only in translation.

James R. Davila, Lecturer in Early Jewish Studies at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, has written a thorough and stimulating work that should cause especially NT scholars to take careful notice. Here Davila builds on Robert Kraft's insight that the proper place to begin the study of OTP that have been transmitted by Christians is with the earliest physical evidence for the existence of these works: the manuscripts that contain them and the earliest certain quotations of them in Christian literature.

The Provenance of the Pseudepigrapha: Jewish, Christian, or Other? (2005) is a book by James R. Provided that the OT Pseudepigrapha were transmitted by Christians, Davila explores the methodological criteria for distinguishing between Jewish and Christian authorship. Davila concludes that it is possible to demonstrate that some works (notably, the Letter of Aristeas, the Parables of Enoch, 2 Baruch, and 4 Ezra) were indeed Jewish, while in other cases their origin is dubious or debatable.

The Old Testament pseudepigrapha are ancient quasi-biblical texts inspired by the Hebrew Bible. Although frequently mined as Jewish background by New Testament specialists, they were transmitted almost entirely in Christian circles, often only in translation. Christian authors wrote some pseudepigrapha and did not necessarily always mention explicitly Christian topics. This book challenges the assumption that pseudepigrapha are Jewish compositions until proven otherwise. It proposes a methodology for understanding them first in the social context of their earliest manuscripts, inferring still earlier origins only as required by positive evidence while considering the full range of possible authors (Jews, Christians, "God-fearers," Samaritans, etc.). It analyzes a substantial corpus of pseudepigrapha, distinguishing those that are probably Jewish from those of more doubtful origins.
