A Fascinating Glimpse into the World of the New TestamentTransported two thousand years into the past, readers are introduced to Antipas, a Roman civic leader who has encountered the writings of the biblical author Luke. Luke's history sparks Antipas's interest, and they begin corresponding. While the account is fictional, the author is a highly respected New Testament scholar who weaves reliable historical information into a fascinating story, offering a fresh, engaging, and creative way to learn about the New Testament world. The first edition has been widely used in the classroom (over 30,000 copies sold). This updated edition, now with improved readability and narrative flow, will bring the social and political world of Jesus and his first followers to life for many more students of the Bible.

    testify to a new form of society, a truly generous society, wherein honor is not zealously reserved for the few who can manipulate it for their own benefit but is recognized as a quality of all people. No one is more surprised than I am to find that what motivates me now is not a commitment to the Pax Romana [the peace brought about by Rome] but a commitment to the empire of the God of Israel. That God is, I now believe, the eternal, sovereign, and blessed Lord of all, the creato
