The way people lived in Jesus time
What was life like for the ordinary person of Jesus' time and what was it like for Jesus. We can gain insight into the way people thought by understanding the world that they lived in. Although people hasve not changed much the issues they faced have. We may find Jesus' world to be superstitious and basic but then this is a time before medicine was understood and the basics of life were hard to come by. In this world there is no welfare state, no pension and people tend to die young. Jesus' time was very much a young peoples world.
