What was it like to live in the time of Jesus? What did people eat? Whom did they marry? How did they keep themselves clean? What did their cities and towns look like? What did they believe? The answers, it turns out, are surprising. This simple question is not so simple after all. With a historian's insight and a reporter's curiosity, Scott Korb gives us a backstage pass to the unexpected and sometimes down-and-dirty truth about what everyday life was like in first-century Palestine, that tumultuous era when the Roman Empire was at its zenith and a new religion-Christianity-was born.
