This is a book of quotations and citations that differs from standard books of its kind in a number of important ways. Its main aim is to educate and amuse the reader through great quotations selected on the basis of strict qualitative criteria. The quotations and citations have been arranged in a generally chronological order and they have been provided with copious annotations, explanations, comments and collateral information to make them as meaningful as possible. The book tries to provide an interesting and thought-provoking kaleidoscope of the mind, culture, life and manners of Classical Rome. It endeavors to aid comprehension as much as possible by providing the all-important historical and personal contexts that make quotations and citations come to life. They can thus talk to the reader and can provoke his own responses. Roman culture is one of the most pivotal cultures of the world. Classical Rome had largely assimilated and extended the genius of Greece and has been the cradle, the fertile ground on which Christianity had grown and flourished. It has been the bridge through which an enriched Greco-Roman culture was transmitted both to Western and to Eastern Europe, through the Holy Roman and the Byzantine empires, respectively. It has provided, the basis and inspiration for the flowering of the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and also for the French, the American and the industrial revolutions and for the political, the literary and the scientific advances of the modern world. The influence of Classical Rome on Christianity and hence on the world is much greater than is commonly realized or admitted. Many of the Roman quotations have Greek antecedents and many of the same and other quotations have a quite Christian flavor, mainly as a result of the widespread Stoic philosophy that many Roman writers, teachers and politicians adopted as a form of secular religion, especially during Rome's imperial times. A culture which produced intellectual stars of the luminosity of Terence, Cicero, Lucretius, Catullus, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Seneca, Petronius, Lucan, and Tacitus cannot but form an essential part of the mental equipment of any truly cultured person today. This book will appeal to people who enjoy delightful conversation, subtle thinking, important history and culture, fine language, and the company of absorbingly interesting people of another time and place. Jane Austen's idea of good company was the company of clever, well-informed people who had a good deal of conversation. Her idea is eminently satisfied by the contents of this collection.

This investigation builds upon recent developments in the study of Paul's use of Scripture that center around the concept of "intertextuality." Abasciano uses an exegetical method that incorporates into a thorough traditional exegesis a comprehensive analysis of Paul's use of Scripture against the background of interpretive traditions surrounding the texts alluded to, with great emphasis placed on analyzing the original contexts of Paul's citations and allusions. Such an intertextual exegesis is conducted in Romans 9:1-9 with an awareness of the broader unit of chapters 9-11 especially, and also the epistle as a whole. The study finds that many of the themes Paul deals with in Romans 9-11 are also present in ancient Jewish and Christian interpretive traditions surrounding the passages he invokes, and more importantly, that Paul's scriptural quotations and allusions function as pointers to their broad original contexts, from which he developed much of the form, content, and direction of his argument, holding significance for a number of exegetical details as well as broader themes and rhetorical movements. The final chapter seeks to draw conclusions concerning the significance of Paul's use of the Old Testament in Romans 9:1-9 for the exegesis and theology of Romans and for Pauline intertextuality. The identity of the true people of God is central to Romans 9-11 and the epistle. And Paul's use of Scripture is contextual and referential, calling for attention to Pauline intertextuality in standard exegetical procedure. JSNTS 301

Sean A. Adams and Seth M. Ehorn have drawn together an exciting range of contributors to evaluate the use of composite citations in Early Jewish, Greco-Roman, and Early Christian authors (up through Justin Martyr). The goal is to identify and describe the existence of this phenomenon in both Greco-Roman and Jewish literature. The introductory essay will help to provide some definitional parameters, although the study as a whole will seek to weigh in on this question. The contributors seek to address specific issues, such as whether the quoting author created the composite text or found it already constructed as such. The essays also cover an exploration of the rhetorical and/or literary impact of the quotation in its present textual location, and the question of whether the intended audiences would have recognised and 'reverse engineered' the composite citation and as a result engage with the original context of each of the component parts. In addition to the specific studies, Professor Christopher Stanley provides a summary reflection on all of the essays in the volume along with some implications for New Testament studies.

Most up-to-date translations of the Bible do not cross-reference quotations from the Old Testament in the New Testament, leaving students unaware of the importance of its influence. This work contains essays on the question of how one identifies what is quotation and the understanding of the Old Testament that the New Testament writers had. The main body of the work consists of a list of all cross-references in both directions, which should act as a useful resource.
