Product Description

Addresses a much-contested archaeological discovery

In 1980 archaeologists unearthed a tomb near Jerusalem that contained a family's ossuaries inscribed with some familiar New Testament names, including Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. In 2007 the Discovery Channel produced and broadcast a documentary called The Lost Tomb of Jesus, raising interest - and controversy - among the public and specialists alike. Could this actually be the tomb of Jesus and his family?

In January of 2008 a group of internationally renowned scholars from a broad range of disciplines met in Jerusalem to discuss that very question. Covering the archaeological facts about the discovery, Jewish burial customs during the late Second Temple period, first-century inscriptions, the Talpiot tomb, the James ossuary, the Holy Sepulcher, and more, The Tomb of Jesus and His Family? presents their expert perspectives on a much-publicized topic.

Editorial Reviews

The Bible Today
"This volume's real contribution is the wealth of information it provides about Jewish burial practices between the advent of Herod the Great and the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, when the production of tombs and ossuaries in this region was radically disrupted."

Journal of Theological Studies
"A useful and informative book, providing an excellent example of the way limited evidence can be read in varying ways and lead to divergent results."
