On Jannes and Jambres

READING ACTS: Jannes and Jambres. Another installment in Phil Long's current summer series on the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha. Past posts in the series were noted here and links.

There are new fragments of Jannes and Jambres in an Ethiopic translation and also in Greek. And there is a new manuscript in Coptic with material related to the story of Jannes and Jambres. We hope to have translations of all these in volume 2 of Old Testament Pseudepigrapha: More Noncanonical Scriptures (MOTP2).
