Beschreibung:

This book contains essays by Albert Wifstrand, most of which have previously only been published in Swedish. The author brings his range of learning and insight to bear on fundamental questions regarding the Greek of the New Testament. By bringing a full range of stylistic, grammatical and socio-historical data into consideration, Wifstrand finds a place for the language of the New Testament within the evolution of post-classical Greek. This includes full appreciation of the so-called classicistic renaissance in language and culture in the early Empire and its influence on the development of later Greek. Writers that he treats in detail include the New Testament authors of Luke and Acts, the Epistles of James and Peter, Melito, and Galen, among others.
