About the Book -- A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ (in 5 vols.)

This is one of the most often sited works on the Second Temple period. Although it addresses Christians and scholars interested in the Jewish setting of early Christianity, its comprehensiveness makes it an invaluable aid to the general study of events in the Land of Israel at the time of Roman occupation. The work combines broad analysis of the religious, political, social, and economic dynamics that shaped both Judaism and Christianity together with incredible mass of useful facts.

This classic work includes extensive essays on the Roman political system and its leaders, the political and religious parties of Judaism, messianic movements, and pertinent Greek and Jewish literature "including the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha" covering entire period of the Second Temple history. This five-volume set is the original edition of Schurer's landmark work, including the original index. This set consists of two divisions: Division One, volumes 1 and 2; and Division Two, volumes 1, 2, and 3.

The present generation of humanity is privileged to live at the time of the Second Restoration of the Jewish state with all the benefits and problems brought about by its existence. Many of the problems that the Jewish people have to deal with today find their echo in the situation that existed more then 2,000 years ago in that same part of the world. There is much that this ancient history has to teach us and there is not many books like this, from which we can learn so much.

Published for the first time ever as a complete 5 volume-set in electronic, searchable format--more then 21,000 hyperlinks have been added to enable you to navigate it with greatest of ease,--this magnificent trove of ancient knowledge is useful not only for scholars, but a must for anyone interested in understanding of some of the most controversial issues of today.

The power of this work is such that even after almost 100 year since it has been written, Encyclopedia Britannica still found it possible to call this work: "The most valuable general modern work (on the subject) . . . "
