The Apocalypse of Baruch: Translated from the Syriac
R. H. Charles
Book Tree, 2006 - Religion - 184 pages
This is an important religious text that was not included in the Bible. The Apocalypse of Baruch was written in the first person, by Baruch, who describes his experiences both before and after the destruction of Jerusalem in approximately 67 AD. This is a fascinating work because we know the original historical setting that it was written in. More importantly, this rare book is a compilation of prophecies and revelations which have been surprising accurate in light of modern history. After World Wars I and II the prophecies recorded by Baruch became clarified. Therefore, the reader should be aware that although Charles reflects skepticism of Baruch in some cases, it may no longer warranted in light of these newer events. It will be left to the reader to explore the prophecies and determine for oneself the value of the work within this particular area. An extensive Index lists all other known scriptures that are directly connected to or closely parallel the text. Therefore, this work is an important addition for anyone involved in a serious study of religions and apocryphal texts.
