Abstract

LEE, Sang-Mong; HUGHES, Gerald T.  and  VILJOEN, Francois P.. Forgiveness in the intertestamental period. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp. 1-7. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v33i1.484.

The article suggests answers to the following questions: what are the characteristics of God's forgiveness in the intertestamental literature and what connection do these characteristics have with the Old Testament? Important passages in the late Second Temple period that expose the characteristics of God's forgiveness, such as certain Qumran texts (1QH 12:35-37, 1QH 13:2 and the Damascus Document 14:18-19), the writings of Philo and Josephus, the Apocrypha and the Pseudepigrapha, are investigated for this purpose.
