Overview

This pioneering investigation of social and political history illuminates the prehistory of the Synoptic texts from their beginnings up to the writing of the Gospels. Theissen focuses on Galilee, Judea, and beyond Palestine, with their historical crises under Caligula (39–41 C.E.) and in the Jewish War (66–74 C.E.). He is able to distinguish between the bearers of tradition – common people, communities, disciples – in their adaptation and transmission of the tradition in their societies.
