ABOUT THIS BOOK
In seventy-five passages from religious and religio-philosophical writings of the Hellenistic era—Christian, Jewish, and pagan—Hellenistic Greek Texts includes material suited to every linguistic level and illustrates various literary styles. The Old Testament, the Old Testament Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, the New Testament, Philo, Josephus, early Christian writings, pagan literature, and writings from papyri are all represented to provide first-hand material for the study of Christian origins and of koine, or everyday, Greek in which the New Testament was written.

An introduction to koine Greek and Hellenistic culture and religion, a selected bibliography, brief prefaces to the selections, and a complete vocabulary are also included in this volume.
