A key part of interpreting literature is putting a given work in its historical and cultural context. This contextual analysis is essential to understanding and interpreting of any text—and the Bible is no exception. Gary Staats examines the mundane and the extraordinary of Jewish life in order to shed light on the Gospels. Providing scriptural cross-references, he tackles everything from indoor lighting to marriage parades to roles of family members and more.
