Abstract n the New Testament there are quotations from pagan texts which are normally explained as a sign of Paul and Luke's acquaintance with Greek literature. A more accurate examination of the relevant texts shows, however, that each of these quotations makes more sense if considered against the background of early Jewish practice. The connection with pagan literature serves at the same time as an intertextual reference to Jewish polemics against paganism. This conclusion confirms once more the well-known thesis of M. Hengel, namely that there is no direct dependence of early Christianity on non-Jewish thought.
