Topic: The Story and Context of Judaism and Early Christianity
Abstract: Context is important. This point is often brought up when interpreting passages in the Bible. The larger context of what is happening in Israel, specifically as it relates to the Roman government control, also helps us think about certain matters in a different way. For instance, knowing that Rome was not directly ruling in Galilee but was directly ruling in Judea can effect with way we envision Galilee and Jerusalem. This talk will seek to help us see and remember some of the key points in the story and context of Judaism and Christianity.
