B 62 The Galilee that Jesus Knew (2011)


Galilee is often pictured as a tranquil setting for Jesus' timeless teaching, in contrast to the busyness and conflict of Jerusalem. But what was Galilee really like, and how does it provide a context for understanding Jesus' ministry?

Drawing on recent research, this fascinating study sets out the reality of life in Galilee. In particular, it explores the relationship between rich and poor, city and countryside, and the nature of Herod Antipas' rule—providing a vivid context for Jesus' teaching on the kingdom of God.
