What Biblical Archaeology Tells Us About 'Ordinary People' — As Opposed to 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous'
Play • 17 min

If Christians truly believe in the doctrine of the incarnation, that God the Son became fully human, then we must take seriously the human context of that human life. God didn’t just take on a human body, he took on a human mind and a human culture including politics, economics, rituals and medical matters. Learning more about these details helps us to understand the details in the Gospel accounts that we're used to skimming over. This interview is part of an ongoing series with Professor David Fiensy, one of the world's leading experts on the archeology of Galilee with a focus on the New Testament era. He is author of The Archaeology of Daily Life: Ordinary Persons in Late Second Temple Israel.
