Craig Evans on Literacy in Jesus’ Time

CRAIG EVANS PART 2 JESUS AND HIS WORLD (23:52) from St. John’s Nottingham.

Craig Evans deals with the question, “Was Jesus literate?”  Evans mentions the city dump at the Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus which has turned up half a million documents.  Larry Hurtado writes about this find in The Earliest Christian Artifacts: Manuscripts and Christian Origins.

Evans takes up the issue of Jesus as a Jew at about the 7:50 mark, but, unfortunately, the sound then cuts out.
