Summary
In this book Seán Freyne explores the rise and expansion of early Christianity within the context of the Greco-Roman world -- the living, dynamic matrix of Jesus and his followers. In addition to offering fresh insights into Jesus' Jewish upbringing and the possible impact of Greco-Roman lifestyles on Him and His followers, Freyne delves into the mission and expansion of the Jesus movement in Palestine and beyond during the first hundred years of its development
