Item description for The Septuagint of Proverbs: Jewish And/or Hellenistic Proverbs? : Concerning the Hellenistic Colouring of Lxx Proverbs (Supplements to Vetus Testamentum) by Johann Cook...
This monograph deals with an unexplained document of Hellenistic Judaism. The question of "Hellenistic Influence" is addressed on the basis of an analysis of a representative number of chapters of Septuagint Proverbs (1-2, 6, 8-9, 24, 29-31). Scholars have argued that this book was influenced extensively by Greek philosophy. The author follows a contextual cultural method. The Greek text is analyzed on four levels: the semantic, syntactical, stylistic and the theological. The conclusion is that the impact of Stoicism on this Greek version has been overestimated in the past.
