Item description for Social-Science Commentary On The Book Of Acts by Bruce J. Malina & John J. Pilch...

Includes a new translation of the Book of Acts and cultural notes on specific passages

Publishers Description
Like earlier volumes in the Social Science Commentary series, this volume situates Acts squarely in the cultural matrix of the first century Mediterranean world, elaborating its codes of patron and client, mediatorship, honor and shame, healing and sickening, wizardry and witchcraft accusations, and the understanding of the Spirit of God as well as deities and demons as personal causes of significant events. Part 1: Jesus First Command to the Twelve Their Activities Among Israelite Majority Populations (Acts 1:4-12:25) Part 2: Jesus Second Command to Saul/Paul His Activities Among Israelite Minority Populations (Acts 12:25-25:31)
