This is the second volume of the hard-copy edition of a journal that has been published online ( since 2000. Volume 1 was for 2000, volume 2 is for 2001–2005, and volume 3 will be for 2006. As they appear, the hard-copy editions will replace the online materials.

The scope of JGRChJ is the texts, language, and cultures of the Greco-Roman world of early Christianity and Judaism. The papers published in JGRChJ are designed to pay special attention to the “larger picture” of politics, culture, religion, and language, engaging as well with modern theoretical approaches.
