Minute Paper 10/15

Today in class we discussed the main points in Levison’s writing as we analyzed the Apoc. Of Moses. We determined that John Levison questions the authorship of Apoc. Of Moses 15-30 on the basis that, in those chapters, Eve’s characterization and the congruence of events contradicts those in the remainder of the book. We found evidence to support our thesis in his article such as the descpency between the location of Eden in Eve’s testimony verse the location of Eden in the rest of the book. We also noted Seth’s importance in Apoc. Of Moses and his absence in chapters 15-30.
