The last days of Jesus on earth—his Passion, crucifixion, and resurrection—take up an inordinate amount of space in the Gospels. They serve to substantiate how he was more than a mere teacher, prophet, and miracle worker. But trying to reconstruct what actually took place has proven elusive.
In this remarkable tour de force, Schnabel places each of the events in chronological order, then unpacks their theological significance. He profiles all of the 72 people (and groups) involved as well as identifies the 17 geographical locations mentioned. He evaluates evidence from all four Gospels with a fine-tooth comb, illuminating them with recent archaeological findings.
This should prove a useful, reliable reference for Lenten or Easter preparation. Also, by dealing with the alleged discrepancies between accounts, it goes a long way toward placating open-minded skeptics.

This is the first book to describe and analyze, sequentially and in detail, all the persons, places, times, and events mentioned in the Gospel accounts of Jesuss last week in Jerusalem.
Part reference guide, part theological exploration, Eckhard Schnabels Jesus in Jerusalem uses the biblical text and recent archaeological evidence to find meaning in Jesuss final days on earth. Schnabel profiles the seventy-two people and groups and the seventeen geographic locations named in the four passion narratives. Placing the events of Jesuss last days in chronological order, he unpacks their theological significance, finding that Jesuss passion, death, and resurrection can be understood historically as well as from a faith perspective.
