By Richard Rohrbaugh, Lewis & Clark College
Rohrbaugh elucidates the concepts of honor and shame, which he sees as core values in Mediterranean culture and thus of the Biblical world. Rohrbaugh draws on his experiences of living in both the Mediterranean world and in the West. He concentrates on passages in the New Testament that are influenced by the culture of the region and highlights the important role of honor and shame in those verses.
