Perhaps no epoch in history has been the subject of greater curiosity and more intensive study than the late Second Temple period in Palestine the time and place of Jesus life and ministry. Here Jodi Magness examines archaeological and literary evidence to shed new light on Jewish daily life in Judea, Galilee, Idumaea, and Peraea from the mid-first century BCE to 70 CE. Magness provides fascinating details on a broad spectrum of activities, with chapters on * Dining customs and communal meals * Sabbath observance and fasting * Oil and spit * Toilets and toilet habits * Tombs and burial customs * (And more!)
