Description

Early in the 20th century, R.H. Charles translated and edited a series of apocryphal texts, which included Baruch's direct conversations with God that Baruch had in a series of visions during the time of the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. These conversations produced predictions for the end times. Of particular note is the apocalypse when the Messiah appears again on earth. This alternate tale of the apocalypse inspires hope - evil is punished, condemned to hell and cast off the earth, while those left behind are actually the righteous who will enjoy, literally, heaven on earth. Also included in this edition is The Assumption of Moses, an apocryphal fragment noted to have influenced other descriptions of the apocalypse included in the Bible.
