This book contains translations of all of the texts found in volume I of the Oxford University Press 'Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha'. Where does it come from? What does it mean? The familiar version in Genesis is not the source of this fundamental legend, it is not a spontaneous, Heaven-born account that sprang into place in the Old Testament. It is simply a version, unexcelled perhaps, but a version of a myth or belief or account handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation of mankind-through the incoherent, unrecorded ages of man it came--like an inextinguishable ray of light that ties the time when human life began, with the time when the human mind could express itself and the human hand could write. This is the most ancient story in the world--it has survived because it embodies the basic fact of human life.
