Industry Reviews

'[An] impressive and timely collection of studies.' Pacific Theological Review 'This is an interesting, well-researched book that should be of interest to historians, New Testament scholars, and anyone interested in the political and theological activities of the first century of the Christian era.' Church History 'The essays will be of value to scholars concerned with the question of Jesus' involvement in the politics of his day. The book would make a useful reference work for topics related to Jesus and first-century Palestinian politics.' Religious Studies Review 'This is a book which no one will read without learning things that are new to him, in the history of the interpretation of the New Testament, in the Jewish background of the story of Jesus, and in the legal and juridical administration of the Roman provinces. It is full of information on a wide variety of topics.' C. K. Barrett, New Blackfriars
