Consideration of the Greek Bible." In The Language of the New Testament:
Classic Essays. JSNT supp. series # 60. Edited by Stanley E. Porter,
39-59. Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1991.
[The original was published in 1899. The reprint in Porter's anthology is

otherwise identified are from this article. My comments are included in
Soon after there was:

Rydbeck, Lars. "On the Question of Linguistic Levels and the Place of the
New Testament in the Contemporary Language Milieu." In _The Language of
the New Testament: Classic Essays._ JSNT supp. series # 60. Edited
by Stanley E. Porter, 191-204. Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1991.<1>

_The Language of the New Testament: Classic Essays._ JSNT supp. series #

and he added yet again:

Stanley E. Porter. Sheffield: JSOT Press, 1991.
