Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism 1 (2000)
Edited by Stanley E. Porter, Matthew Brook O'Donnell, Wendy J. Porter

The scope of JGRChJ is the texts, language and cultures of the Graeco-Roman world of early Christianity and Judaism. The papers published in JGRChJ are designed to pay special attention to the ‘larger picture’ of politics, culture, religion and language, engaging as well with modern theoretical approaches.
