Barnabas and DSS
Could anyone on the list supply me with a reference that miaght list
the unattributed quotations in the Epistle to Barnabas?
One of the quotations mentions Enoch:
4:5 "The last offence is at hand, concerning which the scripture speaks,
as Enoch says:4:6. For to this end the Master has cut the seasons and the
days short, that His beloved might hasten and come to His inheritance."
and Daniel and there are several passages that look reminiscent of DSS
material, as, for example the material on the two ways, at the end
of Barnabas, which also appears at the beginning of the Didache. Others
are direct scripture quotations. It is all very tantalising.
Many thanks to anyone who can assist me in my research on this most
intriguing early Christian document.
