From The Publisher:
This book exploes the period from the 160's to 63 BCE, when the Maccabees ruled the Jews, up to the publication of the Mishnah in the second century CE
"As interesting to read as they are informative, the volumes in this important series deal in new ways with topics and materials that illuminate the life and literature of early Christianity...Taken as a whole, the series offers various new avenues of approach to an understanding of the social, intellectual, and literary environment of the early Christian movement".
Victor Paul Furnish, University Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Southern Methodist University.
