Abstract:

"In this book, Colleen Conway looks at the construction of masculinity in New Testament depictions of Jesus. She argues that the New Testament writers necessarily engaged the predominant gender ideology of the Roman Empire, whether consciously or unconsciously. Conway examines a variety of ancient ideas of masculinity, as found in philosophical discourses, medical treatises, imperial documents, and ancient inscriptions. With these texts as a starting point, Conway shows how the New Testament writers approach Jesus' gender identity."--BOOK JACKET.
