Excavating Jesus : beneath the stones, behind the texts by John Dominic Crossan( Book )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,436 libraries worldwide
The premier historical Jesus scholar joins a brilliant archaeologist to illuminate the life and teaching of Jesus against the background of his world. There have been phenomenal advances in the historical understanding of Jesus and his world and times, but also huge, lesser known advances in first?century Palestine archaeology that explain a great deal about Jesus, his followers, and his teachings. This is the first book that combines the two and it does it in a fresh, accessible way that will interest both biblical scholars and students and also the thousands of lay readers of Biblical Archaeology Review (150,000+ circulation), National Geographic, and other archaeology and ancient history books and magazines. Each chapter of the book focuses on a major modern archaeological or textual discovery and shows how that discovery opens a window onto a major feature of Jesus's life and teachings

Archaeology and the Galilean Jesus : a re-examination of the evidence by Jonathan L Reed( Book )
20 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 531 libraries worldwide
"Jonathan Reed, co-director of the Sepphoris Acropolis Excavations, brings the Galilee of the historical Jesus to life in this accessible and extensive archaeological survey. Drawing on his years of field experience in Galilee, Reed illustrates how the archaeological record has been misused by New Testament scholars, and how synthesis of the material culture is foundational for understanding the Galilean origin of Christianity and the Jewish culture from which it arose. This new study demonstrates the necessity of considering the specifically Galilean local conditions in the interpretation of New Testament texts. In the first section of his book, Reed shows how settlement patterns and artifacts from Galilee point to close ties between Judean and Galilean Jews during Jesus' time, as well as the ways that Roman urbanization projects at Sepphoris and Tiberias commercialized agrarian peasant life in Galilee. In a second section Reed focuses on the archaeology of Sepphoris, the largest city in Galilee, just north of Nazareth, and Capernaum, Jesus' base of operations at the periphery of Roman power centers. In his final section Reed concludes that our understandings of New Testament texts are enriched considerably by a careful study of the Galilean context of the writings."--Jacket

In search of Paul how Jesus's Apostle opposed Rome's empire with God's kingdom : a new vision of Paul's words & world by John Dominic Crossan( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Many theories exist about who Paul was, what he believed, and what role he played in the origins of Christianity. Using archaeological and textual evidence, and taking advantage of recent major discoveries in Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Syria, [the authors] show that Paul was a fallible but dedicated successor to Jesus, carrying on Jesus's mission of inaugurating the Kingdom of God on earth in opposition to the reign of Rome. Against the concrete backdrop of first-century Greco-Roman and Jewish life, [This book] reveals the work of Paul as never before, showing how and why the liberating messages and practices of equality, caring for the poor, and a just society under God's rules, not Rome's, were so appealing. [In the book, they] engage prose conjures up the complex and rich world of Paul's time, from the imperial intrigues of Rome to the theological infighting among Christian communities in Greece and Turkey to the beautiful landscapes and the cultural conflicts of the Middle East. The illustrations and short, rich, "you are there" descriptions help the reader to follow in the footsteps of Paul and, indeed, in the footsteps of Christianity. -Dust jacket

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
John Dominic Crossan, the eminent historical Jesus scholar, and Jonathan L. Reed, an expert in biblical archaeology, reveal through archaeology and textual scholarship that Paul, like Jesus, focused on championing the Kingdom of God''a realm of justice and equality''against the dominant, worldly powers of the Roman empire. Many theories exist about who Paul was, what he believed, and what role he played in the origins of Christianity. Using archaeological and textual evidence, and taking advantage of recent major discoveries in Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Syria, Crossan and Reed show that Paul was a fallible but dedicated successor to Jesus, carrying on Jesus's mission of inaugurating the Kingdom of God on earth in opposition to the reign of Rome. Against the concrete backdrop of first'century Grego'Roman and Jewish life, In Search of Paul reveals the work of Paul as never before, showing how and why the liberating messages and practices of equality, caring for the poor, and a just society under God's rules, not Rome's, were so appealing. Readers interested in Paul as a historical figure and his place in the development of Christianity -Readers interested in archaeology and anthropology
