Overview

The interpretation of Scripture determined the development of both early Judaism and the first centuries of the Christian church. This first volume of History of Biblical Interpretation demonstrates how the earliest interpreters of the Bible made the Scriptures come alive for their times. Author Henning Graf Reventlow explores the contexts that influenced early biblical interpretation—Hellenism, Stoicism, and Platonism. He pays close attention to inner biblical interpretation and the interpretive practices reflected in the translation of the Septuagint and the writings of Qumran, Philo, the early rabbis, the apostolic fathers, and early Christian leaders such as Justin Martyr, Marcion, Irenaeus, and Origen.
