Product Description

Jerusalem: City of the Great King, the second of four atlases in The Carta New Testament Atlas series, brings to life the Jerusalem that Jesus knew. Renowned scholar R. Stephen Notley presents the latest advances in history and archaeology to draw the reader into Jesus' Jerusalem. The last fifty years in particular have seen significantly increased efforts to discover the city's past. New finds every year render what is previously written almost out of date before the ink is dry. With an acknowledgement of this reality, together with recognition that much of the Old City of Jerusalem remains inaccessible to archaeological investigation, the present work lays its shoulder to the challenge.

Notley, in bringing together this mosaic of evidence, examines the results of recent archaeological investigations and understands them in light of a careful reading of the ancient literary witnesses (biblical and extra-biblical). Notley pays attention to the nuances of language that inform us in the Greek and Hebrew accounts. This is no simple task, and it falls precisely at the juncture of history, philology, and archaeology. To deny the voice of one discipline over the others can leave us short of a clear understanding of history and its topographical details.

Profusely illustrated, Jerusalem: City of the Great King is one more tour de force for Notley and a valuable resource for students of the New Testament.

    This is the second of a planned four-title series that will make up The Carta New Testament Atlas. Steven Notley, already a co-author of the sweeping Bible Atlas The Sacred Bridge, contributes this fine volume. It is the perfect blend of history, text, pictures, and maps. Yes, it is the outstanding Carta maps! Together these features are a feast for the reader.

    Bible students will be greatly enriched here and will find much to expand understanding and gain background in New Testament studies. Carta has been reaching out to a wider audience in many of there later releases, and as much as i love them all, this may be the best so far.

    I see an additional use for this book. Are you planning a trip to Jerusalem? I cant imagine how much better such a trip would be if you read this book first.

    This is a real gem!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
