Bible facts

John Weidner has several posts on Bible facts you may not know at Random Jottings. In #3 he notes that people in Jesus’ time didn’t travel alone but lived, and traveled, in extended family groups. There is also the item that fishing belonged to the state and the fishermen Jesus recruited had to have had licenses to conduct their trade.

The three posts make a good introduction into the social background behind the New Testament that help put the Bible in a context that is easier to understand.
