This collection is an English-language translation of German theologian Adolf Hausrath’s A History of the New Testament Times. In these texts, Hausrath recounts the history of the New Testament, uniting sacred events with their surrounding cultural developments. Drawing from the works of Philo and Josephus, Hausrath illustrates Christianity as a part of a historical process, not its product. A History of the New Testament Times is an engaging narrative filled with both spiritual reverence and Hausrath’s historical insights.
