Paperback
272 Pages

- Publisher This work is based on the premise that to best understand what people say and mean to say, one must first understand the social context from which they speak. In order to understand the New Testament, this means grasping the social system of the Eastern Mediterranean in the first century AD. Drawing his information from the Bible, other first-century writings, and the modern Eastern Mediterranean social system, the author presents seven models that together help frame the social system of the New Testament. Included among these are honour and shame, the social psychology of the person, the perception of limited good, envy and the evil-eye, kinship and marriage, rules of purity, and small group development.

- Publisher Introduces students to both the New Testament and the world of the New Testament through social scientific study. This new edition of New Testament World first published in 1981 (revised in 1993) contains two additional chapters, an updated the bibliography and perforated, tear-out study questions.
