In this 2002 book, James M. Scott focuses on a particular Old Testament pseudepigraphon - the Book of Jubilees, the revelation of an angel to Moses announcing the expectation of a messiah from Judah. He traces the appropriation of the Book of Jubilees in early Christian sources from the New Testament to Hippolytus and beyond, and more specifically focuses on the reception of Jubilees 8-9, an expansion of the so-called Table of Nations in Genesis 10 (1 Chronicles 1). The book takes an interdisciplinary approach based on detailed analysis of primary sources, much of which is seldom considered by New Testament scholars, and explores the neglected topic of ancient geographical conceptions. By studying geographical aspects of the work, Dr Scott is able to relate Jubilees to both Old and New Testament traditions, bringing important new insights into Christian concepts of annunciation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Scott has made an important contribution to the study of both early Jewish and Christian geographic thought and he has highlighted the importance of geography for the study of Judaism and Christianity. This is an important book and should be read by all those with an interest in either one or both of these religions.' Journal of Jewish Studies
'... impressive ...'. The Heythrop Journal
"Scott's far-ranging study will be of interest to specialists in early Judaism and early Christianity, as well as to students of ancient and medieval cartography and chronography...his study, a mine of information for future research, demonstrates how much there is to learn about the Christian reception of Jewish literature from the period of the Second Temple." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
