History of the Rechabites
The book shows heavy Hellenic influence, and the narrative is much like a typical Hellenic myth, particularly showing similarity to the tales of the Therapeutae. It begins with Zosimus, a hermit, continually begging God to show him the land of the Rechabites, until God finally relents and sends an angel to him to lead him there. The Rechabites are described as enjoying the company of angels, leading an ascetic life, and eating only the luxurious fruits that grow on their fragrant island, and wearing no clothes.
