Book Description Current debates about marriage and the family assume much about the history of these institutions. But what do we really know about the social and ethical arrangements of these institutions, especially during biblical times? Placing the history of these institutions in context requires not only a study of biblical literature which traverses several millennia but also a grasp of extrabiblical literature and sources culled from several different cultural contexts. In this book six experts in their respective fields trace out the dynamic contours of marriage and family as understood and practiced in ancient Israel and the Near East, in Greek and Roman society, in second temple Judaism, and finally in the New Testament.
