Summary "Mark Forman explores the extent to which Paul's concept of 'inheritance' in Romans, and its associated imagery, logic and arguments, served to evoke socio-political expectations that were different to those which prevailed in contemporary Roman imperial discourse. Forman explores how Paul deploys the idea of inheritance in Romans and analyses the sources which inform and overlap with this concept.
Coins, literature and architecture are all examined in order to understand the purpose, hopes and expectations of first-century society. This book contributes to recent studies covering Paul and politics by arguing that Paul's concept of inheritance subverts and challenges first-century Roman ideologies"-- Contents Introduction: the politics of inheritance?

It is difficult to establish when it was erected; dates based on epigraphical grounds range from the mid-first century BCE to the second century CE. Most enigmatic of all are its origins. Franz Cumont found it in the Paris National Library, where it had long sat unnoticed, and published it in He tentatively proposed that when the emperor heard reports of a Galilean troublemaker whose tomb was empty, he had issued this edict to squelch further robberies and rumors — a theory later popularized by F. Theoretically, it could have come from anywhere; other proposed places of origin include Samaria83 and Asia Minor.
If the inscription is indeed from Galilee, we can probably rule out some of the earlier proposed dates and identify 44 CE, the beginning of direct Roman administration there, as a likely terminus post quem. The edict is best understood on its own simple terms: it is a law against grave robbery.
In the early or mids, Palestine received its first Roman colony, a veteran settlement founded at the strategic site of Ptolemais. Aside from being an important port, Ptolemais connected the coastal route taken by soldiers marching south from Syria with the entrance to the Jezreel valley, a major east—west passage. The colony thus provided the Romans with a secure military base at an important junction as well as a reserve military force upon which to call, if necessary.
One shows that its territory was divided into pagi, the standard Roman administrative unit. The number of colonists is difficult to estimate, but it could not have been very high — perhaps dozens, perhaps the low hundreds. Brill, , 70—96, esp. To quell the rebellion, Cestius Gallus, legate of Syria, gathered his forces at Antioch.
As his forces marched southwards along the coastal route to Ptolemais, local gentiles joined them and swelled their numbers even further. After defeating rebel forces at Asamon, a Galilean mountain, the soldiers rejoined the main army at Caesarea. His army included the V 90 The activities of Roman troops in the revolt are summarized in Saddington, Development, 48, —; Smallwood, Jews, — When his son Titus arrived with the XV Apollonaris from Egypt, his forces numbered approximately 60, men.
He responded by sending a thousand cavalry and six thousand infantry to the city. For that season, Vespasian initially quartered the V and X legions at Caesarea Maritima, though at least parts of these legions accompanied him later in the winter to Caesarea Philippi. The XV wintered at Scythopolis. He next seized Taricheae, executing some 1, Jews at the stadium and enslaving thousands more for Nero and Agrippa, according to Josephus. Tabor, and Gischala before moving south to Jerusalem. Their inevitable defeat was accompanied by the even greater catastrophe of the destruction of the temple.

Judaism would henceforth cease to be a sacrificial religion. War 4. On this occasion, however, the Romans recognized that greater forces would be necessary to maintain stability and assigned the province to a governor of praetorian rank. War 7. The colony was comprised primarily of veterans of the X Fretensis, though it is possible that some settlers came from other eastern legions. We have only hints. In , the Romans annexed the Nabatean territory, apparently without bloodshed. They reorganized it as the province of Arabia and attached the old Decapolis cities of Gerasa and Philadelphia to it.
Brill, , 87—, esp. Bowersock, Roman Arabia Cambridge, Mass. The Roman army in Palestine 63 legion was sent to garrison the region. Their principal base was at Bosra, though detachments were found elsewhere, as abundant archaeological evidence shows. Perhaps the Romans felt that the combined might of the veteran colony at Ptolemais, the sympathetic city of Gaba a military colony founded by Herod the Great , and the nearby troops of Agrippa II presumably converted to auxiliaries after his death were sufficient to handle any minor troubles that erupted, and the X Fretensis could march north for major disturbances.
By the early second century, however, circumstances had changed. The combined might of two legions and their auxiliaries were sufficient to handle most situations in Palestine, although the Bar Kokhba revolt required additional units. It, like most milestones in the area, does not identify the legion that erected it, but its wording is very close to that from the Ptolemais road, suggesting that it, too, was made by the II Traiana. Aside from occasional brief missions outside the province, its units were based in Galilee and the Jezreel for a century or more. Note the challenge by J.

Smallwood notes the possibility that a detachment returned for the Bar Kokhba war Jews, Hannah M. This conflict seems to have been confined to Judea, and there is no evidence of Galilean participation in it. Scythopolis was an important junction, with roads shooting out in several directions. One connected it to Gerasa, which itself became an important stop on the newly constructed north—south Via Nova Traiana joining the Gulf of Aqaba to Bosra.
See sources already noted. Each milestone bore a Latin inscription with the name and titles of the reigning emperor. Many had a second inscription in Greek indicating how far it was to the nearest city. Most people who used the roads, particularly nonsoldiers, would not have been able to read either the Latin or the Greek, but they would have understood the message of Roman imperial domination nonetheless. That the milestone inscriptions were made for such propagandistic purposes is strongly suggested by the fact that while they were frequently put up in densely populated areas, they were rarely erected in more sparsely settled areas.
Excavations of its ruins in the early twentieth century showed that the main part of the camp consisted of a small enclosure within a larger enclosure, with the whole complex large enough to house approximately a thousand men. Isaac, Limits, — Schumacher, Tell El Mutesellim Leipzig, , vol. Brill, , 52— Another Latin inscription, found closer to the main encampment, also comes from an altar. Archaeological finds and rabbinic traditions shed some light on their deployment.
Finds there include a Roman bath, two inscriptions one Greek, the other the Latin inscription mentioned earlier , and forty-two fragments of a bronze statue of Emperor Hadrian. Maisler, M. Stekelis, and M. Cagnat and G. LaFaye, eds. By the early second century, legions throughout the empire were staffed mostly by non-Italians.

Pesahim 4, 31b; Miller, Studies, 40— Regardless of his place of origin, though, every legionnaire was a Roman citizen, socialized in the ways and values of the Roman army and thus a bearer of Roman culture. Most soldiers in auxiliary cohorts and alae were not yet citizens, but they looked forward to citizenship as a reward at the end of their service. They, too, helped introduce Roman culture to Galilee on a new scale.
Jesus did not frequently interact with Roman soldiers there, nor did Galilee suffer the political and economic consequences of actual occupation. At the very least, scholars who apply such terms to firstcentury Palestine should be explicit about what they mean and do not mean when using them.
