Ever wish you could travel through time to visit the world of the first Christians? This full-color, photo-saturated resource will transform your understanding of Jesus, Paul, and the early church. Jonathan Reed presents New Testament archaeological information in an accessible, way for students of all faiths. With this guide you will visit homes and temples, view monuments and artifacts, examine maps, papyri, understand Paul's warnings against sexual immorality, know the relation of the Bible to archaeology, and with graphic detail see the wonder of the New Testament social world.
This one-of-a-kind presentation of the New Testament world and its archaeological treasures provides a new, more complete understanding of the world in which Christianity was born. Through lavish photographs, architectural plans, extensive maps, and detailed charts, you can explore the landscape of Nazareth where Jesus grew up; sit at the shores of Galilee where he preached; and enter the streets and temple of Jerusalem where his ministry was fulfilled. An experienced archaeologist and biblical expert will guide you throughout your journey around Israel and beyond—on the Mediterranean voyages of Paul to the homes and synagogues of the Roman Empire, where he planted the seeds of Christianity. Visit Emperor Nero's "Golden House," witness the desperation of the Jewish revolutionaries at Masada, and explore the magnificent basilicas of Constantine the Great.
