Item description for Peoples of the New Testament World: An Illustrated Guide by William A. Simmons...

Making sense of the New Testament requires navigating your way through the labyrinth of different cultural, religious, political, and economic groups that existed in first-century Jewish society as well as in the Roman Empire at large. In this introduction to the major people groups of the New Testament world, William Simmons clarifies New Testament history and teaching by providing a historical analysis of major Jewish groups such as Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes, as well as important Greco-Roman groups such as Philosophers, Herodians, and Centurions. Important sub-groupings within the first-century church, such as Hebrews and Hellenists, are set in the larger context of the Judeo-Romanmix. Color photographs of ancient sites and archaeological discoveries highlight the descriptions. A helpful resource for anyone interested in understanding the world of the New Testament better, this book would alsomake an excellent textbook for an introductory college or seminary course on early Christian history or backgrounds. Scribes . . . Pharisees . . . People of the land. These and other groups are interwoven throughout the New Testament narrative, often appearing with little or no explanation. Peoples of the New Testament World draws upon current scholarship to illumine the nature and significance of these groups for the serious student of the Word.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peoples of the New Testament World: An Illustrated Guide?

Superb Buy  Apr 2, 2009
Dr. Simmons takes us into the world of the New Testament in an exciting and insightful way. Scholarly, yes. Boring and dry, no. Offers meat on a stick with dessert on the side! The illustrations, photography, time lines, and maps are excellent. The organization of the book and readability is also fantastic. Great quality at a very affordable price. Should be a part of any manners and customs library. A must for all pastors, preachers, and Biblical teachers.
