This is the first full and systematic attempt to set Hellenistic Jewish and early Christian historiography within the framework of Greco-Roman traditions. The thesis of the monograph is that a distinct historiographical tradition, apologetic historiography, developed as a result of a dialectic relationship with Greek ethnography. Professor Sterling situates the Hellenistic Jewish historians, Josephus, and Luke-Acts within this tradition.
