REL 406 - Pauline Literature I
1 & 2 Corinthians and 1 & 2 Thessalonians
Week 2 - The Roman Empire and the Greek cities
Our readings this week are intended to give us a feeling for the Roman and Greek cultures of the time, and to give the time-frame of the events of the New Testament. From them you may get a picture of what it was probably like to be a member of a peace-keeping force in outlying regions of the Roman Empire, such as Judea and Asia Minor, where the people and customs were strange to the provincial governors and to the officers of the Roman army.
