This volume honors Professor Everett Ferguson of Abilene Christian University on the occasion of his sixty-fifth birthday. Reflecting the interests of the honoree, the twenty-one contributions focus on various aspects of the early church and its environment. Together the articles form a broad tapestry of interrelated topics informed from the disciplines of philosophy, patristic theology, archaeology, rhetoric, art, Greco-Roman religion, and biblical studies.Table of ContentsPreface Everett Ferguson: An Appreciation Contributors Abbreviations 1 What Gnostics Knew 2 Attitudes toward Foreigners in 2 Maccabees, Eupolemus, Esther, Aristeas, and Luke-Acts 3 En-Spirited Waters: Baptism in the Confessions of Augustine 4 Cyprian's Eschatology: Explaining Divine Purpose 5 The Reading of the Personal Letter as the Background for the Reading of the Scriptures in the Early Church 6 The Papias Fragments on Mark and Matthew and Their Relationship to Luke's Prologue: An Essay on the Pre-History of the Synoptic Problem 7 Further Reflections on the Fourfold Gospel Canon 8 A Late-Antique Tunic Fragment in St. Louis 9 Eusebius and The Little Labyrinth 10 Lions in Early Christian Literature 11 Cicero's Sketch and Lactantius's Plan 12 Incense Offerings in the Syriac Transitus Mariae: Ritual and Knowledge in Ancient Christianity 13 Pseudo-Orpheus: Tracking a Tradition 14 The Athanasian Understanding of Scripture 15 Conversion to Paul's Gospel 16 The Chreia in the Desert: Rhetoric and the Bible in the Apophthegmata Patrum 17 Encyclopedia Revisited 18 Fourth- and Fifth-Century Homilists on the Ascension of Christ 19 A Cult from Philadelphia: Oikos Religion or Cultic Association? 20 The Appropriate, the Necessary, and the Impossible: Faith and Reason in Hebrews 21 The Public Priestesses of Pompeii A Select Bibliography of the Writings of Everett Ferguson Index of Canonical and Deuterocanonical Works Index of Ancient References Index of Authors
