Sibylline Oracles 2

READING ACTS: An Extract from Pseudo-Phocylides – Sibylline Oracles, Book 2.56-148. Past posts in the series on the Sibylline literature are noted here and links. Cross-file under Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Watch.

Incidentally, William Brown recently had a post on Pseudo-Phocylides in his Pseudepigrapha Saturday series at The Biblical Review Blog. (I shall doubtless have occasion to mention this series again.) I am unconvinced that Pseudo-Phocylides is of Jewish provenance. It could be, but the content is pretty generically biblical and it could be Christian or something else.
