ABSTRACT
The Shepherd of Hermas quotes from a work it calls �Eldad and Modad�, and several later ecclesiastical book lists also name this writing. While this work is otherwise unknown, there are good reasons for inferring not only that the authors of James, 1 Clement, and 2 Clement also knew �Eldad and Modad�, but further that they have preserved a few lines from it. If so, those lines can help us to gain some idea of the nature and shape of this lost apocalypse or pseudepigraphon.
