" The New Testament speaks of a world quite different from the world of our daily experience.
Yet understanding the facts of life in the New Testament world is important if we are to thoroughly understand the significance of the New Testament writings. Just as we must bring a knowledge of today's world to reading our daily newspaper, so we must bring a knowledge of the world in which Jesus and Paul and John lived to our reading of the gospels and letters of the New Testament, if we are to fully comprehend what we read.

Consider how baffled St. Peter would be if he had been suddenly transported from fishing on the Sea of Galilee to our living room, and we handed him a news magazine or novel to read while we went to make his dinner.
Why should we think it any easier for us to step into his world than it would be for him to step into ours ?
The more we know about the world of the New Testament, the more we will be able to read the Bible with understanding and insight.

Henrí Daniel-Rops has written a modern classic, which avails itself of biblical scholarship in order to present background information on daily life in Palestine during the time that Jesus lived. A prolific writer, Daniel-Rops has the rare ability to write about history in a way that brings it alive for modern readers. Daily Life in the time of Jesus offers the reader a bridge into the world of the New Testament, one that is sure to lead him closer to the person of Jesus himself. "
