1 Enoch: The Hermeneia Translation - download pdf or read online

By James C. VanderKam, George W. E. Nickelsburg

1 Enoch used to be a huge and well known textual content in historical Judaism, good attested one of the manuscripts at Qumran, and a key piece of the puzzle of Jewish origins. George W. E. Nickelsburg and James C. VanderKam have now revised their translation along with their book of the whole volumes on 1 Enoch within the Hermeneia statement sequence. this can be the single English translation of one Enoch that takes under consideration all the textual facts now to be had within the Ethiopic model, the Greek texts, and the lifeless Sea Aramaic fragments–texts now not on hand, for instance, in general variations of the lifeless Sea Scrolls.

He wrote, “Having a witness among the poor and having a ministry to the poor is one thing, but making the poor folks members of your congregation is something else altogether” (Wright 2007: 15). As part of this perspective and in keeping with their Afrocentric ethos, Trinity makes economic contributions and visits to the community of Saltpond, Ghana. The church seeks to “help the town maintain and preserve local traditional values and systems” and to “provide opportunities for dialogue with African Christians as well as collaboration that supports empowered institutions in Africa” (Speller 2005: 96).

Luckily, the church leadership had developed several strategies to teach Afrocentric ideology and theology to a novice such as myself. An Afrocentric Curriculum During my time at the church, Reverend Mark Lomax, Reverend Will Coleman, and Elder Itahari Toure provided the core spiritual leadership and African-centered teaching of the church. Reverend Lomax, the pastor, received a Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, and served as the pastor of churches in North Carolina and Atlanta before coming to First Afrikan.

However, as mentioned earlier, this did not necessarily mean that they personally identified as Presbyterian. Although First Afrikan was a Presbyterian Church, the Afrocentric bias was the more compelling reason for attending the church for most of the members with whom I interacted. In addition, most of the literature, including the new members’ class study book, programs distributed during service, and the leadership transformation curriculum and education handbook privileged a discussion of Afrocentrism over Presbyterianism.
