Abstract In ms Paris of the Fragmentary Targums one finds lengthy introductions to the festival readings and also to the weekly sabbath readings. In one of these introductions (to Numbers 16.1ff.) a story is told about three prophets who denied their own prophecies, namely Moses, Elijah and Micah. This story is of special interest because of the quotations it contains of scriptural verses from the Prophets that are at variance with the offcial targum on the Prophets. The article o?ers a detailed analysis of the story and discusses its date and origin by comparing it to the extant parallels in rabbinic sources.
