Hurtado on Stuckenbruck on 1 Enoch

LARRY HURTADO: 1 Enoch: Reception and Usage.
For anyone interested in the writing known as 1 Enoch (and any NT student has to be in today’s world), there is a splendid review of reception and usage of the writing in ancient Jewish tradition and in early and modern (Ethiopian) Christianity: Loren T. Stuckenbruck, “The Book of Enoch: Its Reception in Second Temple Jewish and in Christian Tradition,” Early Christianity 4 (2013): 7-40.

I have recently mentioned Professor Stuckenbruck's important work on 1 Enoch. He is also translating the Aramaic fragments of the Book of Giants for volume 2 of the More Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Project.
