Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which reflects the work of the Hellenistic Moral Philosophy and Early Christianity Group, a program unit of the Society of Biblical Literature. The group, which is composed primarily of New Testament scholars and classical philologists, has been active since the beginning of the decade. The first official session was held at the 1990 SBL Annual Meeting in New Orleans, where Professor Abraham J. Malherbe delivered an address on "Hellenistic Moral Philosophy and the New Testament". In that address Professor Malherbe not only provided a retrospective analysis of approximately 100 years of research but also suggested various subjects that merit more detailed investigation of biblical scholarship. The chapter presents an overview of how other chapters of the book are organised.
