Read this one with two of my kids after we culled it from a history reading list for homeschooling by Susan Wise Bauer. The book offers helpful historical context for first century Galilee and the tensions between Jewish hopes and Roman oppression.

The book is 50 years old — reminding me that much of this history was around but lost to me in my own childhood and early theological learnings. Glad to be able to remedy that with my own kids.
