Billions of people across the world have heard of Jesus Christ, but how many are truly acquainted with the key locations in which he walked, ministered, and lived? In the second edition of Peter Walker's established text, readers take a pilgrimage though the Holy Land, discovering for themselves the rich historical aspects of Jesus's world.
Following the chronology of Jesus's life and ministry, drawing especially on the Gospel of Luke, In the Steps of Jesus guides readers through Bethlehem, Nazareth, and the desert to Jesus's final journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Each chapter gives particular attention to the work Jesus did in the location--placing his ministry within its original historical and geographical context--and raises questions on the archeology, authenticity, and recorded evidence of later pilgrims and historians. This new edition takes into account the archeological discoveries of the last fifteen years to provide an up-to-date guide to the Holy Land of today. Using maps, timelines, and boxed features to highlight special topics of interest, In the Steps of Jesus serves as an expert introduction to the most prominent sites of the New Testament.
