Baruch 3:38
« on: January 03, 2013, 05:54:08 AM »
Hey All,

From the book of Baruch
This is our God, and there shall no other be accounted of in comparison of him. 37 He found out all the way of knowledge, and gave it to Jacob his servant, and to Israel his beloved. 38 Afterwards he was seen upon earth, and conversed with men.

I am curious to know whether verse, Bar 3:38 Afterwards, he was seen upon earth and live among men.

Is this an interpolation added by Christians or is this verse genuine ?. Do we have any commentary of this verse quoted pre-christianity i:e, Qumran scrolls ?

Thanks in advance

I think it's meant to say that God established a relationship with men and dwelt among them (as in man was no longer estranged from Him). Also, Moses received the law directly from God, and the OT prophets had a direct relationship with Him, even before Christ.

It's also possible that "he" refers not to God, but to knowledge.
