Product Description

What were the lives of women and men like in ancientIsrael? How does it affect their thinking about gender?Recent discussions of biblical womanhood and manhood tend toreflect our current concepts of masculinity and femininity,and less so the lived world of the biblical authors. Infact, gender does not often appear to be a noteworthy issuein Scripture at all, except in practical matters.Nonetheless, Genesis 1 invests the image of God itself withmale and female making sex central to what it means to behuman.
Instead of working out gender through Genesis'screation and Paul's household codes, we want to ask: Whatwas life like on an ancient Israelite farmstead, in a Second Temple synagogue,orin aRoman household inEphesus? Who ran things in the home, in the village, in thecities? Who had influence and social power, and how did theyemploy it?
Taking insights from anthropology andarchaeology, the authors of this collection paint a dynamicportrait of gender in antiquity that has been put intoconversation with the biblical texts.The Biblical World of Gender explores gender backstage in the daily lives andassumptions of the biblical authors and on-stage in theirwritings.
