Publisher's Description

Hanson and Oakman's award-winning and enormously illuminating volume quickly has become a widely used and cited introduction to the social context of the early Jesus movement. This new printing augments the text with multiple features on an accompanying CD-ROM.

Author Bio

K. C. Hanson has taught biblical studies at Episcopal Theological School and the School of Theology at Claremont, Creighton University, and St. Olaf College. He is author of numerous scholarly articles and two volumes in the Proclamation series.

Douglas E. Oakman is Professor of Religion at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, Washington, and author of Jesus and the Economic Questions of His Day.

Endorsements

"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." ¬óCarolyn 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..." ¬óBruce J. Malina, Creighton University

Publisher Description

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.

    Seemed to have a secular attitude from Christian experts. Very useful information on the political-religious environment of first century Palestine. Figures are particularly helpful.
