76 Fitzmyer, The Genesis Apocryphon (1966), 14. He had earlier expressed the same view, but with less developed reasoning, in “Some Observations on the Genesis Apocryphon,” CBQ 22 (1960) 277-91 [277]. 77 Cf. Fitzmyer, The Genesis Apocryphon, 122. 78 K. Beyer, Die aramäischen Texte vom Toten Meer, 165. 26 Milik and F. García Martínez that both sources depend on an earlier Book of Noah (see below), Nickelsburg suggested that: [A] Noah book may have provided source material for 1 Enoch 106-107, whose author enhanced the figure of Enoch and added some eschatological material drawn from other parts of the Enochic corpus.

In sum, one could plausibly argue (with earlier scholars) that the redactor of 1 Enoch altered and abbreviated the Apocryphon, which would suggest a late 2nd cent. E. date for the Apocryphon at the latest. Arguments based primarily on the relative length of these two related accounts are also troubling. g. Del Medico and Fitzmyer) is extremely suspect, since this rule – if indeed it is a rule at all – is prone to have exceptions. As noted above, Vermes (no amateur to the field) believed just the opposite to be true: abbreviation, not expansion, is the rule.

It indeed appears that 1QapGen 12 and 17 contain more compressed forms of their respective stories than Jub 6-7 and 9, turning the already questionable argument of Del Medico and Fitzmyer on its head. Werman, however, does not take full account of the impressive differences that obtain for each of these parallels. Such differences might be better used to support the “common source” theory of García Martínez and others. The 40 matter of comparative chronologies in the Abram account is intriguing, but here too a final judgment seems premature in the absence of corroborating evidence.
