Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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 Jesus’s last week in Jerusalem.

Part reference guide, part theological exploration, Eckhard Schnabel’s Jesus in Jerusalem uses the biblical text and recent archaeological evidence to find meaning in Jesus’s 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 Jesus’s last days in chronological order, he unpacks their theological significance, finding that Jesus’s passion, death, and resurrection can be understood historically as well as from a faith perspective.

Editorial Reviews

Craig S. Keener
— Asbury Theological Seminary
"As always, Eckhard Schnabel’s work is comprehensive, independent, insightful, and well documented, critically engaging a wide range of scholarship and other sources. We see the full fruit of such massive scholarship on display here."

D. A. Carson
— Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Many have undertaken to write about Jesus’ last days in Jerusalem, but few have done so with Schnabel’s magisterial command of the sources, both Jewish and Greco-Roman, or with his knowledge of the secondary literature. Despite the erudition packed into this work, the writing is straightforward and clear. This is a volume for everyone who claims to be interested in the passion of Jesus—for skeptics and the devout alike, for academics and pastors. No one will be able to engage this literature in the future without weighing the careful and detailed work of Eckhard Schnabel."

Craig A. Evans (from foreword)
— Houston Baptist University
"Eckhard Schnabel has emerged as one of the world’s foremost New Testament scholars. . . . No stone is left unturned in this remarkable book, which focuses on Passion Week, from Palm Sunday, when Jesus entered Jerusalem, to Easter Sunday, when Jesus was resurrected. . . . Every reader will be impressed by the depth of learning reflected in this comprehensive, encyclopedic book. . . . [It is] a satisfying and illuminating study of what many will agree was the most important week in human history."
