Quick access to Septuagint vocabulary and syntax for students with two years of biblical Greek

Interest in the Septuagint today continues to grow stronger. Despite that interest, students have lacked a guidebook to the text similar to the readers and handbooks that exist for the Greek New Testament. Discovering the Septuagint: A Guided Reader fills that need. Created by an expert on the Septuagint, this groundbreaking resource draws on Jobes's experience as an educator in order to help upper—level college, seminary, and graduate students cultivate skill in reading the Greek Old Testament.

This reader presents, in Septuagint canonical order, ten Greek texts from the Rahlfs—Hanhart Septuaginta critical edition. It explains the syntax, grammar, and vocabulary of more than 700 verses from select Old Testament texts representing a variety of genres, including the Psalms, the Prophets, and more.

The texts selected for this volume were chosen to fit into a typical semester. Each text (1) is an example of distinctive Septuagint syntax or word usage; (2) exemplifies the amplification of certain theological themes or motifs by the Septuagint translators within their Jewish Hellenistic culture; and/or (3) is used significantly by New Testament writers.

About the Author:

Karen H. Jobes (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is professor emerita of New Testament Greek and exegesis at Wheaton College and Graduate School in Wheaton, Illinois. Her previous publications include Invitation to the Septuagint, coauthored with Moíses Silva.

Review:

"We will always have a need for a grammatical/syntactical companion to the Greek New Testament. Past generations have been served well by Zerwick and then Rogers and Rogers. Now I commend Irons to a new generation of students who want to understand not only the individual Greek words but how those words work together to make meaning." (William Varner, The Master's College 2015-06-09)
