An enlightening journey through the ancient world from "the greatest Jesus scholar of his generation" (The Sunday Telegraph)

Though the New Testament gospels are some of the most extraordinary documents ever written, the picture they provide of Jesus's world is a very partial one. This remarkable work paints a comprehensive and colorful picture of the world that Jesus knew. From detailed, convincing portraits of John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate, Herod, Jesus himself, and other key figures, to the Jewish and Hellenistic leaders often ignored in scripture, Who's Who in the Age of Jesus is a critical, in-depth look at one of the most tumultuous eras in human history.
