How are Galilean and Judeans like Texans and New Yorkers?

I found this short article very helpful: "7 Differences Between Galilee and Judea In the Time of Jesus."  This definitely helps you understand the narratives of Matthew and Mark much better!

"even an impeccably Jewish Galilean in first-century Jerusalem was not among his own people; he was as much a foreigner as an Irishman in London or a Texan in New York"

Recommended for you teachers -- and an easy recommendation for you to make to your students.
