In this book, Sabine R. Huebner explores the world of the
protagonists of the New Testament and the early Christians using
the rich papyrological evidence from Roman Egypt. This gives us
unparalleled insights into the everyday lives of the non-elite
population in an area quite similar to neighboring
Judaea-Palestine. What were the daily concerns and difficulties
experienced by a carpenter's family or by a shepherd looking after
his flocks? How did the average man or woman experience a Roman
census? What obstacles did women living in a patriarchal society
face in private, in public, and in the early Church? Given the
flight of Jesus' family into Egypt, how mobile were the lower
classes, what was their understanding of geography, and what costs
and dangers were associated with travel? This volume gives a better
understanding of the structural, social, and cultural conditions
under which figures from the New Testament lived.
