This book reviews two or three hundred inscriptions and papyri for the first time, or reissued, in 1976. They have been selected from the several thousand Greek documents which appeared in that year. Many are reproduced in full, with translation, and extensive notes, and discussion on points of historical and philogical interest relating to the New Testament or to the early history of Christianity. A Judaica section is also included.
This series seeks to keep New Testament and early church researchers, teachers, and students abreast of emerging documentary evidence by reproducing and reviewing recently published Greek inscriptions and papyri that illumine the context in which the Christian church developed. Produced by the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre at Macquarie University, the New Docs volumes broaden the context of biblical studies and other related fields and provide a better understanding of the historical and social milieus of early Christianity.
