Although scholars have for centuries studied the historical Jesus -- since Reimarus in the late 1700s -- only recently has this discipline been challenged and even enriched by archaeological research. This book specifically asks and answers these questions: What does archaeology tell us about the life of Jesus? How and in what ways do archaeological discoveries help us reconstruct and understand the life and teachings of Jesus, son of Joseph?
Archaeology still has many things to reveal about the life and world of Jesus of Nazareth. To touch a two-thousand-year-old pot held by a Jew who lived in a small village frequented by Jesus can bring us closer to understanding those who were touched by Jesus."Jesus and Archaeology" contains the revised and edited lectures that leading archaeologists and biblical scholars presented at a gathering in Jerusalem to celebrate the new millennium. Many contributors came directly from their excavations in places like Bethsaida, Capernaum, Nazareth, and Jerusalem to share their discoveries and insights, focusing on the question "In what ways do new archaeological discoveries clarify the world, life, and thought of Jesus from Nazareth?" Readers of "Jesus and Archaeology" will gain many new insights into the life and times of this fascinating Galilean Jew.Contributors: Paul N. Anderson Rami Arav Dan Bahat Richard A.
