Rabbinic Tradition and New Testament Backgound by R.A. Stewart

Roy A. Stewart, The Earlier Rabbinic Tradition and its Importance for New Testament Background

This interesting little monograph on the Rabbinic background to the New Testament came across the sorting tables at Book Aid recently. I have corresponded with IVP’s Rights Department and they cannot say with certainty who owns the copyright. They are, however, happy for me to upload it here, but if anyone knows how to contact the author’s literary executor, do contact me.

Cambridge Greek Testament on 2 Corinthians – Alfred Plummer

Alfred Plummer [1841-1926], The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools and Colleges

This is a commentary on the Greek Text of 2 Corinthians by the prolific biblical commentator Alfred Plummer. The Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools and Colleges series is proving to be one of the most popular I have digitised to date, as the contributors’ knowledge of Greek was outstanding. My thanks to Book Aid for making a copy of this public domain work available for digitisation.
