world of NT Last week I received the author’s issues of a book published by Baker Academic:

The World of the New Testament
Cultural, Social, and Historical Contexts
Edited by Joel B. Green, Lee Martin McDonald
Baker Academic, August 2013. 616 pages

The book contains 5 main sections, all containing several subchapters: 1: Setting the Context: Exile and the Jewish Heritage; 2: Setting the Context: Roman Hellenism; 3: The Jewish People in the Context of Roman Hellenism; 4: The Literary Context of Early Christianity; 5: The Geographical Context of the New Testament. My contribution (Philo and the New Testament, pp. 405-412), falls in the 4. section.
The Publisher describes the volume thus: “This volume addresses the most important issues related to the study of New Testament writings. Two respected senior scholars have brought together a team of distinguished specialists to introduce the Jewish, Hellenistic, and Roman backgrounds necessary for understanding the New Testament and the early church. The book includes seventy-five photographs, fifteen maps, numerous tables and charts, illustrations, and bibliographies. All students of the New Testament will value this reliable, up-to-date, comprehensive textbook and reference volume on the New Testament world.”
