Volume 74, Issue 2
  • ISSN: 2542-6583
  • E-ISSN: 2590-3268



As part of NTT JTSR’s series on Key Texts, the present article discusses Benjamin Isaac’s monograph . Despite its favorable reception among ancient historians and classicists, this important book has not garnered much attention from scholars working on ancient Christianity and related disciplines. The article introduces Isaac’s work, situates its contribution in the broader discussion about the origins and nature of racism, and argues that the book opens up new and interesting avenues for the study of the New Testament and related literature as well as the subsequent history of Christianity.
