Schurer's landmark work has been a trusted source of Jewish history for over 100 years. Providing a glimpse into the world in which Jesus and the apostolic fathers conducted their ministry, this authoritative and scholarly 5 volume collection documents the Jewish people in the time before and after the life of Jesus Christ.

The power of this work is such that even after almost 100 year since it has been written, Encyclopedia Britannica still found it possible to call this work: "The most valuable general modern work (on the subject)".

This classic work includes substantial essays on the Roman political and religious parties of Judaism, messianic movements, and pertinent Greek and Jewish literature—including the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha—from the centuries before and after Christ.

This is one of the most often sited works on the Second Temple period. Although it addresses Christians and scholars interested in the Jewish setting of early Christianity, its comprehensiveness makes it an invaluable aid to the general study of events in the Land of Israel at the time of Roman occupation. The work combines broad analysis of the religious, political, social, and economic dynamics that shaped both Judaism and Christianity together with incredible mass of useful facts.

The present generation of humanity is privileged to live at the time of the Second Restoration of the Jewish state with all the benefits and problems brought about by its existence. Many of the problems that the Jewish people have to deal with today find their echo in the situation that existed more then 2,000 years ago in that same part of the world. There is much that this ancient history has to teach us and there is not many books like this, from which we can learn so much.

The collection is meant more for serious (or academic) study of the Jewish people, than just casual reading.

This is a valuable addition to any minister's or serious Bible student's library. Such meticulous documentation is rare in more modern reference works. This set offers a wealth of background toward understanding the historical setting of the Bible.
