Are the literary forms in New Testament unique---or were they commonplace in the first century? Aune identifies the major literary genres in the New Testament and early Christian literature: biography, history, letters and homilies, and apocalypticism. Comparing them with common forms in Judaism and Hellenism, he sheds light on the conventions that the New Testament writers both followed and violated.
This volume in the Library of Early Christianity examines the literary techniques that were common during the development of the New Testament, and how these techniques influenced Scripture.
The Library of Early Christianity is a series of eight outstanding books exploring the Jewish and Greco-Roman contexts in which the New Testament developed.
David E. Aune is Walter Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana. He is the author of numerous books and articles on the New Testament and early Christianity.
