Dr. Hoehner has gathered a vast amount of data, both from Scripture and extrabiblical sources, to support his conclusions concerning key dates in the life of our Lord. Among them: - The Date of Christ's Birth - The Commencement of Christ's Ministry--The Duration of Christ's Ministry--The Year of Christ's Crucifixion He carefully documents his position and compares the date available--including a study of Greek words, Roman law, and Jewish customs and prophecy.
In the interest of mapping out the chronology of Christ's life, this book studies Scripture and extra-biblical sources to determine key dates from his time on earth, particularly his date of birth, the commencement of his ministry, the duration of his ministry, and the day and year of his crucifixion. A bibliography and index are included.
Harold W. Hoehner received his ThM and Th.D. at Dallas Theological Seminary and his PhD. at Cambridge University. He is Chairman of the Department of New Testament Literature and Exegesis at Dallas Theological Seminary.
