R.T. France on the Differences Between Galilee and Judea

17 Aug

On Sunday nights we have been studying the Gospel of Mark verse by verse at our church.  This has been a fascinating study and one which has shown me more than ever the depth and power of this smallest of Gospels.

Today I found an article on Justin Taylor’s blog which provides helpful general ideas on the importance of geography and culture in Palestine at the time of Jesus.  New Testament scholar RT France highlights seven key differences between Galilee and Judea.  His article may help you understand a little better some of the hatred the Judean religious leaders felt toward Jesus.

Here is the link:
