Course detail: OSH126 - The Roman Empire and Its Involvement with Judaism and Christianity
We'll review the Roman Empire from 200 BC to 500 AD when the Empire expanded dramatically, and meet Julius Caesar, Augustus, Pontius Pilate, Nero and Constantine. We'll examine the Empire from a political, economic and theological perspective. Romans believed in God, or better yet, many gods. Within Roman power we meet the Jews-Herod the Great, Caiaphas the High Priest, Jesus and his disciples and later Paul. Tucked within Judaism emerges Christianity, and we'll grapple with many questions: Who was Jesus? Why did "Christians" separate from the Jews? Why did Rome hate Christians? What role did Constantine play in this drama? Lastly, we'll review Christianity's growth and the assembly of the New Testament.
