In the first century A.D., Rome was the dominating political power in Palestine, as in the whole Mediterranean basin. The astonishing evolution from a small republican city-state to a military superpower was accomplished through diverse and complementary strategies. These tactics also obtained during the consolidation of the Imperium Romanum under the first emperors. These strategies would act as stabilizers of the Roman domination of the world and protect against internal and external attacks. People, groups, and movements that proclaimed the "Kingdom of God" because of their religous and/or political points of view came into conflict with the ideologies of pax romana and domination. These resistance groups in Palestine, as in the empire, were regarded as troublemakers by the political elite, because they did not keep the Roman rules of the game and infuriated the Roman authority through their activities and programs.This book describes the stages of the Roman reaction to these troublemakers with a special focus on the movement of Jesus of Nazareth and other contemporary prophetic-messianic figures. The chances of survival of these movements under the all-powerful Roman system were slim, thus the continuation of Jesus' cause must be considered exceptional.
