Â·How Jewish dietary laws provided a powerful metaphor for God's acceptance of the Gentiles
Brimming with lavish, full-color photos and graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary walks you verse by verse through all the books of the New Testament. It's like slipping on a set of glasses that lets you read the Bible through the eyes of a first-century reader! Discoveries await you that will snap the world of the New Testament into gripping immediacy. Things that seem mystifying, puzzling, or obscure will take on tremendous meaning when you view them in their ancient context. You'll deepen your understanding of the teachings of Jesus.

Best of all, you'll gain a deepened awareness of the Bible's relevance for your life.

Â·Commentary based on relevant papyri, inscriptions, archaeological discoveries, and studies of Judaism, Roman culture, Hellenism, and other features of the world of the New Testament
Â·Hundreds of full-color photographs, color illustrations, and line drawings
Â·Copious maps, charts, and timelinesÂ·Sidebar articles and insights
