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 brings us closer to understanding those who were touched by Jesus. "Jesus and Archaeology" contains lectures that leading archaeologists and New Testament experts 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 archaeological discoveries clarify the world, life, and thought of Jesus of Nazareth? Readers of "Jesus and Archaeology" will gain many new insights into the life and times of this fascinating Galilean Jew.
