The Roman Context for the Jews

This week we highlight a short segment from one of IBC's Roundtable Talks from 2020 with Professor Paula Fredriksen. She and Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg talked about the First Century Roman-Jewish World. In this podcast episode, we hear Professor Fredriksen explain the role of sacrifices in the Roman world and how Jews were perceived by their Hellenistic neighbors. We conclude by untangling the cause of the argument between Paul and Peter in Antioch.

Israel Bible Center offers a wide variety of Roundtable Talks with world-renowned scholars. This week we highlight one talk about the culture and religious environment in which early Christ-following movement developed. How did the Jewish world interacted with and was a part of the larger Roman world and culture? How did views of late antiquity regarding gods and ethnicity among other topics shaped the phraseology and conceptional setting of the New Testament collection? You can listen to the full talk at The First-Century Roman-Jewish World.
