Item Description...
Overview
George Smith, a twentieth century American, moved into a house with a large vineyard in the Eastern Mediterranean during the first century A.D., going back in time and space. He needed help on his land and requested that individuals interested in work be at his place at 9 A.M. on August 8. No one showed up. This is just one of the sixy fun-to-read "windows" Bruce Malina cleverly presents in this book that explains the customs and culture of the world in which Jesus lived and taught. Each adventure depicts a twentieth-century North American encountering puzzling practices while visiting Judea during this time period. These vignettes offer quick and easy access to the first-century Mediterranean world and relate to segments of the New Testament and other passages from the same cultural area.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful into first the culture of the bible.  Oct 18, 1998
Bruce Malina did a great job giving an insight into the culture of the bible. He gives the reader examples of things and how they would be handled if they were to take place in the times of the bible. A must read for biblical culture enthusiasts.
