What was it like to live in the time of Jesus? What did people eat? Who 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. With a historian's insight and a reporter's curiosity, Scott Korb here gives readers a backstage pass to the unexpected and sometimes down-and-dirty truth about what everyday life was like in first century Palestine, the tumultuous time when the Roman Empire was at its peak and Christianity was born.
