Soldiers in Jesus' Times

Gary Manning has posted a helpful survey on military presence in Palestine during the NT era, including references from the Gospels themselves.

The piece is called Soldiers in the Gospels, and it's cross-posted at Talbot Seminary's faculty blog (which is a great undertaking, but which really needs to shrink its header drastically) and also at Gary's personal blog, Eutychus.

Well worth checking out.  (H/T Charles Savelle)
