Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802828345, Hardcover)

On an almost daily basis new discoveries are made that shed light on the New Testament. As these discoveries are published and old material is reevaluated, we get clearer glimpses into real life as it was at the time that the New Testament was written. "The New Testament in Its First Century Setting" brings together an international group of scholars responsible for much of this cutting-edge research.

In opening a window on the world of the New Testament, the authors draw on a wide range of disciplines: ancient history, archaeology, sociology, papyrology, and linguistics alongside copious treatment of ancient literature and rigorous theological reflection. These twenty-one studies cover every major part of the New Testament corpus — the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles, and Revelation — and deal with subjects ranging from the linguistic background to Jesus’ dereliction cry on the cross to the relationship between Rome and the seven churches of Revelation 2–3. In addition, each essay uses material from outside of the New Testament to make an original contribution to our knowledge of the biblical texts themselves.

Presenting the state of the art in New Testament studies, "The New Testament in Its First Century Setting" is a fitting tribute to Bruce W. Winter, warden of Tyndale House in Cambridge, England. The volume includes a foreword by John B. Taylor, chairman of the Tyndale House Council, and a list of Bruce Winter’s publications.
