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 takes on many sensational claims that
have been proposed in recent books and peddled in the media, and uses
actual archaeological findings to uncover the truth about several key
pieces of Jesus' world.
- What was the village of Nazareth
actually like in the time of Jesus?
- Did synagogues really exist, as the
- What does archaeology tell us about the ruling priests who
condemned Jesus to death?
- Has the tomb of Jesus really been found, as
has been claimed?
Evans' 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.
