Review of Law and Salvesen (ed), Greek Scripture and the Rabbis

MARGINALIA: Nicholas de Lange on Greek Scripture and the Rabbis, Edited by T.M. Law and A. Salvesen. Did the Jews abandon the Greek Bible to the early Christians? Excerpt:
Greek Scripture and the Rabbis is a valuable contribution to Greek bible studies. Its eleven chapters represent the cutting edge of scholarship in this area. Even if few of them engage directly with rabbinic studies, taken together they draw attention to important questions, both methodological and substantial, in the study of the Jewish reception and use of Greek bible translations.
