Religion and Resistance in Early Judaism prepares intermediate and advanced students of Greek to read and translate selections from 1 Maccabees and Josephus, with an emphasis on building knowledge of grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. The book also describes the religious and cultural clash between the classical world and early Judaism. It includes:
  • Historical context from Alexander the Great to Josephus
  • Greek text of 1 Maccabees 1:1-4:61
  • Selections of Greek from Josephus's life, Jewish War, and Antiquities of the Jews
  • Notes on the grammar and syntax of each selection of Greek text, including numerous cross references to Greek and biblical literature
  • A comprehensive glossary of Greek terms and a select bibliography
  • Foreword written by Dr. Paul Maier
John Nordling is eminently suited for this task, since he combines classical scholarship with a profound knowledge of New Testament Greek.
