The Oxford Illustrated History of the Bible A richly illustrated account of the story of the Bible written by leading scholars.

The Epistle of Jeremiah

In codices Alexandrinus and Vaticanus, this follows Baruch as a kind of appendix to Jeremiah; like Baruch, it not was not originally included by Jerome, but the Old Latin translation was later incorporated into the Latin Bible. Again like Baruch, there is no Hebrew version extant, though a fragment of the Greek text has been found at Qumran Cave 7 (7Q2), a cave which contained only Greek manuscripts.

Scholars are divided on whether this work was translated from Hebrew or composed in Greek. Moore argues that because it alludes to a verse in the Hebrew book of Jeremiah but not the Greek ( 10: 5 ) its author knew a Hebrew rather than a Greek text of the book. He also points to several instances of alleged mistranslation. (Torrey had earlier argued for an Aramaic original.) All important ancient versions derive from the Greek, and the Semitic original, if there was one, remains elusive.
