In search of Paul : how Jesus's Apostle opposed Rome's empire with God's kingdom by John Dominic Crossan( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 544 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

Archaeology and the Galilean Jesus : a re-examination of the evidence by Jonathan L Reed( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 500 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."--BOOK JACKET

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
