Review quote

Carl Savage's Biblical Bethsaida will certainly become one of the 'must read' books for scholars of the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and archaeology.

For anyone who is interested in the life of Jesus this book is absolutely a must. -- Rami Arav, Director, Bethsaida Excavations Project, University of Nebraska at Omahashow more
