Call For Papers: Theme for 2008: Interpretive Intertextuality in the Greek Scriptures The Greek Bible unit invites papers on the use of Greek Scripture by later Greek translators of Jewish canonical or deutero-canonical books. Examples would be the use of Greek Pentateuch in the translation of the prophets, the Greek Proverbs in Sirach,or the Greek Psalter in Job. The use of the Greek versions in the New Testament will be excluded in this themed session. However, papers will be accepted for an additional open session on any aspect of the Greek Bible. All papers accepted must demonstrate the use of the Greek text in distinction from the Hebrew Bible.
