This edition is the Greek Recension.
This apocryphon is composite and is dated in its present form not earlier than the fifth or sixth century C.E. The Greek and English texts are on facing pages. It has circulated under numerous titles. Its importance is the record of Jewish reflections on the legend of the lost tribes and the marvelous characteristics of the terrestrial paradise of its inhabitants, the Rechabites.
