Though an understanding of the historical/cultural environment of the New Testament is essential for sound exegesis, acquiring such information can be difficult. The editors have compiled this resource with the beginning New Testament student in mind. The selections are designed as a vehicle to move the learner with little or no knowledge of ancient sources to a basic understanding of the significant authors and texts. Readings from a variety of genres give insight into the archaeological, theological, and sociological background of the New Testament. Among the many contributions are works by Tacitus, Josephus, and Philo. Other features include a bibliography, illustrations, indexes, and a helpful introduction to each reading.
