Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Early Christianity and Classical Culture: Comparative Studies in Honor of Abraham J. Malherbe contains the table of contents, list of contributors and abbreviations. The book contains essays that are dedicated to Abraham J. Malherbe. The essays traverse a rich panoply of texts from ancient Mediterranean culture. They are grouped around five Greek terms that reflect key arenas of the cultural interaction of ancient Jews and Christians with their Graeco-Roman neighbors: respectively, Graphos (semantics and writing); Ethos (ethics and moral characterization); Logos (rhetoric and literary expression); Ethnos (self-definition and acculturation); and Nomos (law and normative values). The book focuses on the use of Classical and Jewish "parallels" in the history of New Testament scholarship.

Keywords: Abraham J. Malherbe; ancient Jews; classical culture; early Christianity; Graeco-Roman neighbors; New Testament
