Foreign But Familiar Gods (Journal For The Study Of The New Testament Supplement Series)

Foreign But Familiar Gods (Journal For The Study Of The New Testament Supplement Series)

Lynne Allan Kauppi

$214.50

Hardback

Through a close and informative reading of seven key texts in Acts, Kauppi analyses the appearances of Graeco-Roman religion, offering evidence of practices including divination and oracles, ruler cult and civic foundation myth.


Foreign But Familiar Gods then uses a combination of these scriptural texts and other contemporary evidence (including archaeological and literary material) to suggest that one of Luke's subsidiary themes is to contrast Graeco-Roman and Christian religious conceptualizations and practices.
