This study is the revision of a doctoral dissertation completed for Union Theological Seminary (New York) in 1973. Original impetus for the work was provided by a 1970 seminar on Jewish Christianity conducted by the New Testament faculty at Union Theological Seminary. There is no document in the Pseudepigrapha more valuable than the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. Where Qumran and its theology are discussed, so is the Testaments. Where the ethical teachings of Jesus are analyzed, the parallels in the Testaments must be considered. Where the eschatology and messianism of late Judaism and early Christianity are an issue, the same themes in the Testaments cannot be avoided. The Testaments contains remnants of ancient sources otherwise lost; it may be unique outside the New Testament in its double love-command and universal salvation. The doctrine of the two Messiahs claimed for it is paralleled only in the Qumran literature. [From Preface and Introduction]
