Das Zitieren der äußeren (paganen) culture ist für das frühchristliche Schrifttum nicht selbstverständlich. Zitate aus den griechischen Werken vor allem der klassischen Zeit kommen dort jedoch relativ oft vor, in einigen Traktaten (wie besonders bei Clemens von Alexandrien) sind diese sogar sehr häufig. Das Buch setzt sich mit der Frage nach den Gründen dieser literarischen Praktik auseinander, wobei deren jüdisch-hellenistische Vorgeschichte besondere Beachtung findet. Die Monographie kann von allen denjenigen mit Gewinn gelesen werden, die sich für die Beziehungen zwischen dem Judentum, dem in Entstehung begriffenen Christentum und der griechisch-römischen Umwelt interessieren. Dem neutestamentlichen Zitieren der pagan-griechischen Schriften ist ein separates Kapitel gewidmet.

He needs to circulate quick for his time is brief. quickly, he is aware, he, the Destroyer, will in his flip be destroyed.
