Product Description

This compendium of the texts and documents that shaped the history of the New Testament has been updated to include the discovery of recent decades such as the Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic texts from Nag Hammadi. It includes everything form the work of towering historical figures such as Aristotle, the Caesars, and Josephus to the letters and legal documents of everyday people. Jewish, Gnostic, and Pagan religious literature complete this vivid picture of the Mediterranean world at the time of the first Christians. This resource has been compiled by one of this century's premier New Testament scholars, and gives the reader direct access to the wider context in which Jesus preached, Paul taught, and the New Testament was written.

C. K. Barrett is Professor of Divinity at the University of Durham, England. He has established himself it the front rank of contemporary New Testament scholars by such works as The Holy Spirit in the Gospel Tradition, Commentary on St. John, and The New Testament Background.

    Carefully organized and thorough, this collection of primary documents is invaluable for grasping the context of the emergence of Christianity. Barrett's summaries help to make sense of technical or otherwise unusual terms. If you are serious about understanding Christianity in its earliest context, this is the book for you.
