Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient sources from biblical citations that occur in the book Light from the Gentiles: Hellenistic Philosophy and Early Christianity. Some of the biblical citations include Genesis, Exodus, Jeremiah, Mark and Acts. Rather than viewing the Graeco-Roman world as the "background" against which early Christian texts should be read, Abraham J. Malherbe saw the ancient Mediterranean world as a rich ecology of diverse intellectual traditions that interacted within specific social contexts. Malherbe's essays laid the groundwork for his magisterial commentary on the Thessalonian correspondence and launched the contemporary study of Hellenistic moral philosophy and early Christianity.

Keywords: Abraham J. Malherbe; early Christianity; Hellenistic philosophy
