When did the Romans conquer Judea?Why did Jews and Samaritans hate one another?What did ancient Jewish people know about disease and medicine?Most people recognize that knowledge about the historical events and culture of the ancient world can greatly enhance our understanding of the Bible. But finding trustworthy resources that present the Bible's background in an interesting, accessible format can be a challenge. This series, Putting the Bible in Its Place, is designed to provide serious students of the Bible with the tools they need to draw exciting new insights from the text. In informative, easy-to-read prose, expert authors provide overviews of the events, beliefs, and customs that shaped the world of some of the Bible's most prominent figures.In this volume, The World of Jesus, readers will be introduced to the history and institutions that formed the setting for Jesus' life and ministry. The Greek influence on the East, the might of the Roman Empire, the religious beliefs of the scribes and Pharisees, the daily life of the Galilean working class, and much more will unfold before your eyes. The words and works of Jesus will become less mysterious but even more significant when viewed in the light of their original context.
