Corpus Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A research project that finds and analyzes parallels from Graeco-Roman literature in order to understand the New Testament more clearly.A fundamental Christian belief is that the Bible was inspired by God, though the definition and the extent of inspiration may vary in different Christian traditions. Certainly not less than this divine aspect of the Bible, it is generally agreed that the Bible is clothed with assumptions, ideas, values, expressions, and practices of ancient culture, the so-called human aspect of the Bible. The Corpus Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti (CHNT) takes this human or cultural aspect of the Bible seriously in order to understand the New Testament documents in light of the contemporary Graeco-Roman literature.
