Description:

Did Jesus directly attack the Roman patronage system and promote himself as the benefactor par excellence? Studies in the historical Jesus frequently refer to categories of this sort of in their descriptions of Jesus and the Gospels. Jonathan Marshall critically examines these conclusions through historical inquiry. After surveying relevant archaeological and historical evidence pertinent to first-century Palestine, he examines Luke's presentation of Jesus in three representative passages (6:17â€"38, 14:1â€"24, 22:14â€"34). Luke's wholesale neglect of patrocinium and limited use of benefaction to describe Jesus aligns well with the historical realia of Palestine as determined through primary sources.

Synopsis: Scholars use patrons and benefactors in the interpretation of Jesus and the Gospels, but this practice needs re-evaluation. Many New Testament studies build from outdated classical scholarship and only superficial interaction with archaeological research. Recent classical studies have improved modern understanding of these ancient categories tremendously. Archaeological advances shed new light on first-century Palestine. Jonathan Marshall evaluates the categories of patrons and benefactors in light of the findings of new classical studies and archaeological work. He offers a much needed clarification between socio-historical patron-client relationships and Roman patrocinium . He also elucidates differences between patrocinium and benefaction. An in-depth investigation of cities, villages, and leadership in first-century Palestine reveals the minimal attestation of benefaction and, still less, patrocinium in the area and among the people. The dearth or, in some cases, complete lack of honorary inscriptions is one obvious pointer in this direction. An analysis of three passages in Luke (6:17-38; 14:1-24; 22:14-34) follows. The analysis demonstrates that Luke does not adopt the specific terminology of patrocinium . Use of the benefactor category is present but limited while debt to Jewish cultural influences predominates. One discovers that Luke's presentation of Jesus, in these three passages, matches well the historical realia of Jesus' day.

About the Author: Jonathan Marshall attempts to describe the historical Jesus especially in relation to Roman patronage (patrocinium) and Hellenistic benefaction. He builds a picture of first-century Palestine through archaeological and historical inquiry before examining three passages in the Gospel of Luke.
