Product Description

While many periods in history have received intensive study, the late Second Temple Period in Judaism--the historical era into which Jesus was born, raised and conducted his ministry--none was more consequential for the formation of the embryonic, nascent, and apostolic Christian communities and thus for the church across the ages.

In Stone and Dung, Oil and Spirit: Jewish Daily Life in the Time of Jesus Jodi Magness (Professor in Early Judaism at the University of North Carolina) examines archaeological and literary evidence in order to shed new light on Jewish daily life in Judea, Galilee, Idumaea, and Peraea during it climactic period from the mid-first century (c. 50 BC) to 70 AD, the time of the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple by Rome.

Magness provides fascinating details on a broad spectrum of subjects including:

  • Purification Rituals
  • Animals and Insects
  • Daily Household Tools
  • Dining Customs and Communal Meals
  • Sabbath Observance and Fasting
  • Coins
  • Clothing and Tzitzit
  • Uses of Oil and Spit
  • Toilets and Toilet Habits
  • Tombs and Burial Customs

Jodi Magness brings the literary evidence from both Jewish and New Testament writings together with the extensive archaeological material to produce a literally 'down to earth' picture of the conditions and customs of daily life in the late Second Temple period which will be essential reading for all who are interested in the period.

Sidnie White Crawford
-University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Magness's latest work is a superb handbook on Jewish daily life in the late Second Temple period. She demonstrates how texts and archaeology, with careful scholarship, can mutually illuminate each other. This book will be valuable for undergraduates, graduate students, and all scholars of the period for a long time to come.

Lawrence H. Schiffman
-New York University
"Bringing together archaeological evidence, Second Temple period sources including the Dead Sea Scrolls, and early Christian literature, Jodi Magness illuminates numerous aspects of the daily life of Second Temple Jews. Her originality and mastery of the sources makes this a major contribution to our field.
