Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Machiela on the publication of Genesis Apocryphon and Related Documents in James Charlesworth's The Dead Sea Scrolls: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek Texts with English Translation (Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2018).

Volume 8A brings together Dead Sea Scrolls that develop stories in Genesis along with other texts. The Genesis Apocryphon (1Q20, 3Q14 frg. 8) is a creative, interpretive, and theologically driven rewriting of a portion of Genesis. Several other documents provide traditions about Noah and his sons, including the Book of Noah, Admonitions Based on the Flood, and a composite text of the Birth of Noah manuscripts (4Q534–536). The collection also provides the manuscript witnesses to A Joseph Apocryphon found on Masada.
