The Book of Acts in Its Diaspora Setting
From The Publisher:
In The Book of Acts in Its Diaspora Setting, the fifth volume in this groundbreaking series, Irina Levinskaya provides an important new study of the relation of Jews to the societies in which they found themselves during the period of dispersion. Drawing from impressive archaeological research, Levinskaya surveys commonly held views about this difficult aspect of Jewish history and challenges particularly the views of such scholars as Feldman regarding the true nature of Jewish missionary activity. According to Levinskaya, Diaspora Jews were looking not for fromal comforts, but for "God-fearers" who helped them to maintain good relations with their neighbors and with Roman authorities. Luke shows a deep historical understanding of this situation by his close attention in Acts to the significance of this group in early Christianity.
