Examines these texts within the socio-political contexts of first century Palestine and the Roman empire, as well as artwork from that era, to see how the economic vision offered might have been countercultural. Explores how each NT book builds upon earlier ones, offering its unique vision of justice and what faith communities can take from these texts as they seek to live faithfully amid unprecedented economic inequality in the United States.
