The eight chapters of this volume explore the contribution that numismatics can make to a serious investigation of the New Testament and its world. The first two chapters focus on themes connected with the reign of the Julio-Claudian emperors, the next three on aspects of the Pauline letters that may be illuminated by specific issues of Roman coinage, and the final three concentrate on coinage minted during the reign of Hadrian. There is a 15-page bibliography, and an index.
