The grammatical information is contained in the footnotes. The vocabulary lists are conveniently arranged below the Greek texts to which they refer. - Includes canonical and non-canonical Christian texts, Septuagint (prose and poetry), Jewish Pseudepigrapha, inscriptions, and Jewish and Hellenistic literary Greek. - Includes a Web component with more than thirty additional readings for classroom and independent use. - Passages offer a glimpse into the everyday life of Hellenistic Greeks, with themes such as sexuality, slavery, magic, apocalypticism, and Hellenistic philosophy.
