The influence of the Septuagint on the New Testament

Posted by Mike

I spent quite a while today trying to find a copy of my MPhil Thesis today and luckily I found it in and old sent folder. The upshot is that I thought I'd post a copy here so I don't lose it again.

It's a study of Romans 9-11 and how the Septuagint (Greek translation of the Old Testament) influences Paul's theology in this passage. It is intended to show that biblical translation strategy can influence the very writing of the Bible and is therefore a call to be careful in how we interpret the Bible ourselves.

If anyone wants to read it feel free: The Influence of the Septuagint on Paul: A Study of Romans 9-11 (1983)
