Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism 8 (2011-2012)
Edited by Stanley E. Porter, Matthew Brook O'Donnell, Wendy J. Porter, Lois K. Fuller Dow

This is the eighth volume of the hard-copy edition of a journal that has been published online (www.jgrchj.net) since 2000. Volume 1 was for 2000, Volume 2 was for 2001–2005, Volume 3 was for 2006, Volume 4 was for 2007, Volume 5 was for 2008, Volume 6 was for 2009, Volume 7 was for 2010 and Volume 8 is for 2011-2012. As they appear, the hardcopy editions will replace the online materials.

The scope of JGRChJ is the texts, language and cultures of the Graeco-Roman world of early Christianity and Judaism. The papers published in JGRChJ are designed to pay special attention to the 'larger picture' of politics, culture, religion and language, engaging as well with modern theoretical approaches.


Stanley E. Porter is President and Dean, and Professor of New Testament, at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario.
Matthew Brook O'Donnell is Director of Research and Development for OpenText.org, and Adjunct Professor at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario.
Wendy J. Porter is Director of Music and Worship at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario.
