Why Study Ancient Coins with Roland Deines
Professor Roland Deines looks at four ancient coins -- all of them nearly 2000 years old -- and shows how they provide a window into the world of Galilee and Judea in the time of Jesus. In the gospel there are many references to coins (for example: Mark 12:15 -- on paying Roman taxes; Mark 11:15 and John 2:15 -- the coins of the money-changers in the temple; Matthew 17:27 -- on the half-shekel tax; or Matthew 20:2 -- a reference to a denarius as a day's wage) and examples of the coins referred t
