Although it is critical to study the theological aspects of the Gospels, one must approach them with a proper socio-historical understanding in order grasp the fullest meaning of the text. This is the approach Harold Hoehner takes as he presents the world in which Jesus lived. Most significantly, what can be known of the primary political leader of the day and his relationship with Jesus himself, along with the Pharisees, John the Baptist, and Pilate?
Originally published by Cambridge University Press in the Monograph Series of the Society for New Testament Studies, Dr. Hoehner's work has been widely acclaimed for its scholarly reconstruction of Herod Antipas' political career.
