The contributions presented in this volume show that the Septuagint's terminology and concepts for and of divine and human realms only reveal its particular theology when the idea of the exchange between Hebrew and Greek language and thought in the classical and Hellenistic period becomes the guideline and core of all Septuagint research.
The study of the Septuagint's language can only bring about true recognition of its particular theological significance when the idea of exchange between Hebrew and Greek language and thought in the classical and Hellenistic period is so defined that it becomes the guideline and core of all Septuagint research. To bring about the most profound change possible in how the world of faith in the Septuagint is studied, this volume focuses on the terminology and concepts of divine and human realms by comparing pertinent Septuagint texts with Masoretic text and placing them in their religious-historical, philological and philosophical settings.
