The New Testament World in Pictures 1 & 2

By William Stephens

The New Testament World in Pictures 1


The New Testament World in Pictures is a library of information about the first-century world which lies behind the New Testament, especially the Greco-Roman culture. For the entire book, obtain both The New Testament in Pictures 1 and The New Testament in Pictures 2. This unique book covers in considerable depth first-century life including religion, superstitions, trades, commerce, family life, city layout, life-style, amusements, and dress. The Palestinian and Eastern influences are intertwined in the text briefly to provide the proper context, but the book concentrates on the world confronted by Paul.

The text and photographs are thoroughly integrated, with the text explaining details in the photographs so extensively that first-century life is well documented and clearly described. The photographs depict artifacts from both major and regional museums and architectural features from excavated sites located throughout Europe, the Near East, and the United States. Information has been gleaned from sources that range from well-known to quite obscure to provide in one volume an authoritative single source for understanding the world of the New Testament.

Both subject and Scripture indexes are provided to allow quick access to needed information in the book. The text, accompanying most photographs, guides the reader to the New Testament Scriptures that are illuminated by pictures of artifacts and their descriptions.
