Development of Biblical society from a horti-cultural economy to a simplistic agrarian economy

The aim of this article is to study the evolution of the ancient economy from a horti-cultural one to a simplistic agrarian economy. The evolution is imbedded in the socio-historical, political and economic context of the ancient era. The historical overview came to the conclusion that the antecedents of the Biblical jubilee were present in the ancient society. These are namely the conflict between landtenancy and landlessness, the kinship institution being under pressure, greater social stratification through exploitation by the elite and the escalation of conflict between city and country.
