Product Description

Scribes, Pharisees, people of the land . . . making sense of the biblical characters surrounding Jesus requires navigating a labyrinth of different cultural, religious, political, and economic realities. Simmons sets them in context by providing a historical analysis of major Jewish and Greco-Roman groups. Includes color photographs of ancient sites and archaeological discoveries. 350 pages, hardcover from Hendrickson.

    The information in this book is fantastic. The organization, and beautiful presentation makes it a must have for understanding the context of the entire New Testament. I must have for any serious Bible Scholar. The price is also remarkably reasonable for the amount of information and high quality scholarship.

    I am delighted with the outlay and content of this book but it has way too many editing oversights--missing words, extra words, improper consonant breaking of words, and in one case a short duplication of a previous section. When I noticed that it was printed in Singapore I understood why the problems. This is not my first problem with grammatical mistakes in books printed in the Orient. But, a thumbs-up on the book as a whole.

    This book met and even exceeded what I had hoped for in researching materials for a class I am teaching on Inter-Testemental history. I agree it may seem scholastic to a point but this should not be a barrier to purchasing it. The beginning student and the more seasoned learner can greatly benefit from this research work. His connections to biblical references help the learner see the relevance of the historical data to bible study. I will be recommending this to my students. Outside of that it is a fun read. We will see the Biblical people and movements not just as history, but as real people who were used to shape their times.
