CULTURAL WORLD OF JESUS by John Pilch
Scripture expert John J. Pilch highlights aspects of the first-century, Eastern Mediterranean cultural world in which Jesus lived and suggests a cross-cultural comparison with contemporary Western culture. Homilists on the lookout for a fresher approach to interpreting the lectionary texts will enjoy this book.
