Jesus and His World : The Archeological Evidence

Posted on 19 August 2013 Gavin Glenn

In this provocative work, world-renowned scholar Craig A. Evans presents the most important archaeological discoveries that shed light on the world of Jesus of Nazareth. Evans challenges many sensational claims that have been proposed in recent books and peddled in the media by using archaeological findings to uncover the truth about several key pieces of Jesus' world. For example, what was the village of Nazareth actually like in the time of Jesus? Did synagogues really exist, as the Gospels say? What does archaeology tell us about the ruling priests who condemned Jesus to death? Has the tomb of Jesus really been found? Evans's engaging prose enables readers to understand and critique the latest theories—both the sober and the sensational—about who Jesus was and what he lived and died for.

This new paperback edition includes an additional appendix with questions for discussion and reflection, making it ideal for both group and individual study.

"This fascinating work proves that you don't have to be either a scientist or a doubter to truly understand the times and places that populate the New Testament. . . . In a field crowded with critics, this brief work is a refreshing and readable alternative and will be warmly welcomed by many, scholars and students alike."
