Proposed dates range from mid-4th cent. The anonymous author gives very few historical or geographical details in the memre , but one reference points to a location of the author and his spiritual community in northeast Iraq near the Lesser Zab River. The collection does not have a Syriac title. This term is mentioned only in two memre , numbers 19 and Kmosko utilized fifteen mss.

Kmosko theorized that the the book was a primary text of the Messalian movement in the mid-to-late-4th cent. This view was accepted by I. Hausherr and dominated scholarship for the next thirty years. Others focused on the pneumatology A. Guillaumont , ecclesiology R. Murray , anthropology and prayer A. Kowalski , structure L. Wickham , and christology and asceticism D. The thirty memre are of uneven length and utilize a variety of genres: extended biblical exegeses, sermons, discourses on ascetical method.

Patrologia Syriaca 1.3 Liber Graduum

The author appears to be living in the Persian Empire , perhaps somewhere near the Lesser Zab , as it is mentioned in Memra Thirty, and addresses the author's own Christian community. The first discourse, and subsequent ones especially number 14 , divides the community into two groups. The lesser commandments are outworkings of the Golden Rule Matthew 7. On the other hand, the 'perfect' are expected to renounce family, marriage and property so as to receive baptism of fire and Spirit. This division of the community echoes a similar division in Manichaeism. However, Brock has demonstrated that the Book of Steps ' emphasis on the structure of the visible church particularly strong in discourse 12 shows that its doctrine is quite removed from Messalianism. An English translation of the entirety of the Book of Steps by Kitchen and Parmentier has recently been published.
