Book: The First Apocryphal Apocalypse of John: A Greek Reader


The First Apocryphal Apocalypse of John: A Greek Reader is now available for purchase.

The First Apocryphal Apocalypse of John, originally composed sometime between the 5th and 8th centuries, is an apocalypse structured as questions and answers with “John the Theologian” questioning the Lord Jesus. Several themes from the canonical book of Revelation are echoed. There are also several interactions with Psalms and New Testament material, and the vocabulary is largely that of the Greek New Testament.

In this Readers Edition, words from the Greek New Testament that occur 30 times or less are noted, with dictionary form, part of speech, and an English gloss. For further reading assistance, a lightly modernized version of Alexander Walker’s translation from the Ante-Nicene Fathers is included. A glossary of all noted Greek words is also included.
