Daily life and culture at the time of Jesus

A simple introduction to the cultural setting and daily life in the time of Jesus can be found on the Loreto Normanhurst site. This site is visually engaging in its own right (though some sections, disappointingly, are not fully developed yet) and has a good set of links to other sites dealing with aspects of life in biblical times at a level easily accessible to junior secondary students.

Religious and Social Groups

Factions at the Time of Jesus gives a brief outline of various religious groups influential in Israel in Jesus’ time. A slightly more detailed introduction to significant Jewish groups in First Century Palestine is provided on the E.N.T.E.R site.
