Texts and translations are printed side by side; full indices and references are also provided.Since it is being published in honor of Paul Barrett, this volume includes a special preface by Alanna Nobbs, an introductory reflection on Barrett's career and New Testament history by E. A. Judge, and a bibliography of Barrett's work compiled by C. B. Forbes.

Produced by the Ancient History Documentary Research Centre at Macquarie University, the New Docs volumes broaden the context of biblical studies and other related fields and provide a better understanding of the historical and social milieus of early Christianity.
