Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of Hebrew and Aramaic words relevant to the study of social and economic structure, and religious and cultural life and institutions of Jewish society. The majority of the Jewish people in Palestine during the first century lived in small towns which in the Talmudic literature were usually called arim and only occasionally 'villages'. But there were two large Jewish cities, Jerusalem and Tiberias; Jews also resided in the coastal Hellenistic cities and in the Hellenistic Decapolis; but the greater part of the population lived in the smaller towns of Judaea, Galilee and Transjordan.

Keywords: Hellenistic Decapolis; Jewish society; Talmudic literature
