Season 2: Episode 32
The Nasty, Yucky, Funky World of the First Century
Date Aired: 09/11/2023
Face it—you wouldn’t survive two days back in the first century. If the food-borne bacteria didn’t kill you, you might keel over from the odors alone! In this episode, Helen and Dave welcome Jodi Magness, biblical archeologist extraordinaire, for a frank and sometimes graphic discussion of what daily life REALLY would have been like in first-century Judaea: just nasty! And don’t forgot to check out Jodi’s book: Stone and Dung, Oil and Spit: Jewish Daily Life in the Time of Jesus. It’s terrific.
