Palestine in the Time of Jesus
Social Structures and Social Conflicts, Second Edition
- In stock
Hanson and Oakman's award-winning and illuminating volume has become a widely used and cited introduction to the social context of Jesus and the early Jesus movement. This second edition updates all the discussions in light of more recent scholarship, improves clarity and readability of diagrams and maps, provides additional diagrams and images to enhance the book for student use, and includes new classroom resources, for professors and students, on a Companion Web site.
Along with an overview of the ancient Mediterranean worldview, Palestine in the Time of Jesus explores major domains and institutions of Roman Palestine: kinship, politics, economy, and religion.
"The first edition of this classic was already a
handy tool for learning that combines social
models with material evidence of the world of
Jesus. I have used it and will continue to use
it for classes on New Testament and Social
World. Now with expanded chapters, reading
guides and bibliographies, and with clearer
highlighting of key terms and thoughtful
responses to earlier critiques, the classic is
better than ever."
—Carolyn Osiek, Professor of New Testament
Brite Divinity School
"This book has been admirably conceived and
developed to assist the ordinary Bible reader
in narrowing the cultural distance between the
world of Jesus and our own. Both authors are
expert teachers, proven researchers, and clear
articulators of what they know so well: the
society of Palestine in the Time of Jesus ..."
—Bruce J. Malina
"This really is a key resource. . .Anyone who ignores or discounts this treasure-house of material on the New Testament in relation to first–century society in Judaea and Galilee is doing themselves a great disservice."
