Product Description

In this book, Jennifer Dines provides an introductory survey of current scholarship tracing the Septuagint's origins in the third to first centuries BCE and its subsequent history to the fifth century CE. Dines also examines the Septuagint's relationship to the standard Hebrew text and its translational characteristics; as well as considering the Septuagint's value as a collection with its own literary and exegetical character and is shown to be important in biblical studies for both the Old and New Testament. This guide is user-friendly and a splendid introduction for either individuals or students. All sections are clearly laid out with subheadings; there is a detailed table of contents, as well as full indexes. The treatment of topics is comprehensive, balanced, and judicious.

Publisher's Description

Jennifer Dines provides an introductory survey of current scholarship on the Greek Bible - the Septuagint. She outlines its origins in the third to first centuries BCE, going on to trace its subsequent history to the fifth century CE. The Septuagint's relationship with the standard Hebrew text and its translational characteristics are examined, as is its value as a collection with its own literary and exegetical character.

The Septuagint is shown to be an important source for biblical studies (both Old and New Testament), to make a distinctive contribution to the history of biblical interpretation, and to be of considerable interest for understanding the early development of both Judaism and Christianity.
