Overview

This classic set provides a richly detailed look at the world in which Jesus and his disciples walked. It includes essays on the political and religious establishments of the day (both Roman and Jewish), portraits of leading figures, messianic movements, cultural details, and surveys of relevant Jewish and Greek literature, including the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha. Schürer's work covers the centuries preceding and following Christ's life, and is frequently cited today.

The five volumes are broken into two divisions: the first division containing two volumes, the second, three. The First Division covers, "Political History of Palestine, from B.C. 175 to A.D. 135"; the Second Division covers, "The Internal Condition of Palestine, and of the Jewish People, in the Time of Jesus Christ."

All errata noted in the printed edition have been fixed in the Logos edition, so the errata sections have been removed.

Key Features

  • Detailed discussion on the world Jesus walked
  • Essays on political and religious establishments of that day

Praise for the Print Edition

Schuerer's history is a classic in the field of the development of Judaism from the intertestamental period to the first century AD, esp. as it developed with the emerging Christian Church. His work is not, strictly speaking, a piece of church history; rather, it is a broad analysis of the religious, political, social, and economic dynamics that shaped both Judaism and Christianity.

—Rev. Travis D. Stolz

About Emil Schürer

Emil Schürer studied at Erlangen, Berlin, Heidelberg, and Leipsig, and after, Schürer lectured at Leipzig (1896–1878), Giessen (1878–1890), Kiel (1890–1895), and Göttingen (1895–1910). In 1876 he founded the journal Theologische Literaturzeitung and edited it for twenty–six years. He devoted his life to the study of Judaism around the beginning of the Christian era. Over the years he gradually expanded his handbook of New Testament history (1874) into a famous, massive, and standard five–volume treatise entitled A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Christ (1886–1890; English translation, 1890–1891).
