Bringing together scholarship from experts in the field of Judaic studies, including Helmut Koester, William R. Farmer, and George Wesley Buchanan, and celebrated Judiac scholar Jacob Neusner, this multi-volume work provides an extensive evaluation of the beliefs and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and ancient Greco-Roman religions in the Second Temple era. Drawing on each religion’s respective sacred texts, these contributors identify similarities and consider their differences. What emerges is a rich engagement with the socio-historical context of each religion and how their presence in Roman culture impacted each other.
