Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism 11 (2015)
Edited by Stanley E. Porter, Matthew Brook O'Donnell, Wendy J. Porter, Hughson T. Ong

This is the eleventh volume of the hard-copy edition of a journal that has been published online ( 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, Volume 8 was for 2011–2012, Volume 9 was for 2013, Volume 10 was for 2014 and Volume 11 is for 2015. As they appear, the hard-copy editions will replace the online materials.

The scope of JGRChJ is the texts, language and cultures of the Greco-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.
