This edition gives an extensive essays on the Roman political system and its leaders, Jewish political and religious parties, messianic movements, and pertinent Greek and Jewish literature. Excellent work with details.
the only good thing about this set is the way it looks on the shelf, probably were it should stay. the author does not fully believe the Bible, the book by which we judge other books. an example is that the author believes that Daniel was written many years after the fact in an effort to encourage Jewish freedom fighters. with views like these, how far off is he on other matters.
