Handbook of New Testament Backgrounds

Who were the Pharisees? What was a victor’s crown? How would one use a reed to measure a temple?

When we study Scripture carefully, questions like these are sure to come up. Far removed from the original context and without the proper resources, we sit, puzzled by the details before us.

Insight’s Handbook of New Testament Backgrounds: Key Customs from Each Book offers accessible and reliable answers to these and many other questions common to readers of the New Testament. You’ll discover insights into first-century life and the meanings behind significant biblical practices and illustrations. Arranged by Bible book and verse, this resource makes it easy and fun to expand and deepen your understanding of God’s Word.
