The Septuagint of Proverbs - Jewish And/Or Hellenistic Proverbs?: Concerning the Hellenistic Colouring of LXX Proverbs
Scholars have argued that this book was influenced extensively by
Greek philosophy. The author follows a contextual cultural method.
The Greek text is analyzed on four levels: the semantic,
syntactical, stylistic and the theological. The conclusion is that
the impact of Stoicism on this Greek version has been overestimated
in the past.
'"...the monograph is an important contribution to Septuagint studies and, in particular, it will be indispensable for any future approach to the Greek Proverbs."' N. Fernandez Marcos, "Journal for the Study of Judaism", 1999.
