Recently there have been pheonomenal strides in the historical understanding of the world Jesus lived in, as well as lesser-known archaeological discoveries from the early centuries of the common era that explain a great deal about Jesus, his followers, and his teachings. This is the first book that combines the historical and the archaeological in a way that will appeal to a broad general readership interested in discovering the key finds that comprise the state of the art of our knowledge of Jesus and his world. Each chapter of the book focuses on a significant modern archaeological or textual discovery and shows how that discovery opens a window onto a major feature of Jesus' life and teachings.

William G. Deever

Comprehensive, expertly integrated, and powerfully illuminating...in keeping with the best of current archaeological theory and method.
