“Culture of Society”

Educational practice during Jesus’ time was influenced by Greek education {Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.  Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? John 7:33-35} whose centerpiece was the poems of Homer. Hebrew education was less formal, but the parents were charged with teaching their children the history, customs, and laws that in effect make up the “Pentateuch {the first five books of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus,Numbers, and Deuteronomy.}” The Romans had a set of traditional laws that all children were supposed to memorize.
