What trade and currency was used during the life and times of Jesus?
all i know is that they used lira or shekel and it is similar the english money but in english money we dont have 1cent in jesus time they had 1cent and they still do.
The oldest recorded incident of currency trading was mentioned in the Bible when Jesus went to Jerusalem and entered the temple and threw out the money changers. back in those days since Jerusalem was the spiritual capital, people from near by regions would travel.. It was in Jerusalem that they would trade their foreign currency with the local currency.
