The Background of the New Testament and its Eschatology
Author(s): W. D. Davies and D. Daube
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Publication Date: 1964
These essays presented to Dr Dodd to honour a great teacher and scholar are on two themes. Part I systematically surveys the present state of research on the background of the New Testament. (Dr Dodd’s studies in the Septuagint and Hermetica suggested this theme.) Part II is on the particular problem of eschatology in the new Testament (with which his name is chiefly identified).
