About-

These seminal essays investigate material from papyri and inscriptions in order to gain insight regarding the language and literature of Hellenistic Judaism and early Christianity. Included in the essays is Deissmann's famous distinction between letters and epistles. Additionally, the collection includes his attack on the notion that biblical Greek was a sacred language. Deissmann shows, convincingly, that biblical Greek is vernacular Greek.
