Product Description

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.
