About-

This volume looks at various nonliterary papyri from Oxyrhynchus with an eye toward insight into New Testament language and thought. The aim of Meecham's essay is to show how far the writers of the New Testament are affected by the language of everyday life and to discern what, if any, light is thrown by these letters on the epistolary forms of the New Testament.
