Judea was that part of Israel of the southern portion, the land of the Jews. It was the fortune and misfortune of Palestine that it lay mid- way between the capitals of the Nile and those of the Tigris and Euphrates. This brought trade to Judea, and it brought war, time and time again the harassed Hebrews were compelled to take sides in the struggle of the empires, to pay tribute or be overthrown. "For the Lord your God brings into a good land, a land of brooks and waters, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills: A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil, and honey; A land wherein you shall eat bread without scarceness, you shall not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you may dig brass."

This was a busy commercial life in Judea amid the stern security of Roman rule. Merchants and pilgrims in their caravans moving back and forth across the plains of Judea. The Judean wilderness was blasted by the summer sun. The parched, rugged, and forbidding terrain seemed to be entirely without life. But in all that vast emptiness, among the blistering heat and the great empty silence, one lone man moved. Jesus.

Jesus is the greatest paradox in history. He appears in a region of minor importance in the Roman Empire, in a nation which its conquerors describe as "a contemptible collection of slaves" (from Tacitus).
[310, Deuteronomy 8, 320, 322, 324]
