By: Alfred Edersheim
A classic study of everyday life in ancient Israel, including Jewish culture, education and religious practices. The most relevant citations of Scripture, rabbinic sources, and the works of Philo and Josephus are supplied to complement Edersheim’s masterful assessment of the writings of Jesus’ day. This makes bland references come alive, in many cases shedding invaluable light on difficult passages or capturing the deep devotion. Edersheim brings to the task of understanding the world of Jesus and his disciples.
