about

*“What is desired in thine heart I will tell thee, because thou hast sought to see the ten plagues which I have prepared for the heathen. Hear what I divulge to thee, so shall it come to pass.” *

Considered by many to be 'the last important product of the Apocalyptic movement', The Apocalypse of Abraham is an apocryphon, a work that belongs to a body of prophetic Abrahamic literature flourishing about the time of Christ.

"The Book is essentially Jewish," writes George H. Box, with "features . . . which suggest Essene origin." From the Essenes it passed, he suggested, "to Ebionite circles . . . and thence, in some form, found its way into Gnostic circles."

The text details the Destruction of the Temple and thus was written after 70 AD. It is considered part of the Apocalyptic literature but not regarded as authoritative scripture by Jews or any Christian group.

This Enhanced E-book edition of The Apocalypse of Abraham includes illustrations and a newly revised version of the definitive Box translation which has been fully optimized for digital reading.
