Item description for 3 Maccabees (Septuagint Commentary Series) by N. Clayton Croy...
3 Maccabees is among the most neglected books of the Old Testament Apocrypha. This new commentary is one of very few written in the last century, and it is the only full-scale commentary in English. The volume includes a fresh translation of the Greek text of Alexandrinus, an introduction, a section by section commentary replete with cross-references to ancient literature and citations of modern scholarship, a bibliography, and indices. A novel contribution of the commentary is an interpretation of 3 Maccabees as, in part, a narrative satire on the cult of Dionysus.
