Jesus and the Peasants
Oakman, Douglas†E.

Eugene, Ore.: Cascade, 2008 pp. xii + 336. $38.00

Series Information
Matrix: The Bible in Mediterranean Context


Description: While some of the chapters focus on systemic issues, others probe the depths of individual Gospel passages. The author's keen eye for textual detail, archaeological data, comparative materials, and systemic overviews make this volume a joy for anyone interested in understanding Jesus in his own context. The volume is organized into three interrelated parts: 1) political economy and the peasant values of Jesus, 2) the Jesus traditions within peasant realities, and 3) the peasant aims of Jesus.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Literature
