9780060842499: The HarperCollins Visual Guide to the New Testament: What Archaeology Reveals about the First Christians

This one-of-a-kind presentation of the New Testament world and its archaeological treasures provides a new, more complete understanding of the world in which Christianity was born. Through lavish photographs, architectural plans, extensive maps, and detailed charts, you can explore the landscape of Nazareth where Jesus grew up; sit at the shores of Galilee where he preached; and enter the streets and temple of Jerusalem where his ministry was fulfilled. An experienced archaeologist and biblical expert will guide you throughout your journey around Israel and beyond—on the Mediterranean voyages of Paul to the homes and synagogues of the Roman Empire, where he planted the seeds of Christianity. Visit Emperor Nero's "Golden House," witness the desperation of the Jewish revolutionaries at Masada, and explore the magnificent basilicas of Constantine the Great.

The HarperCollins Visual Guide to the New Testament features:

  • Rich descriptions of the worlds of Jesus, Paul, and the first Christians
  • Full-color photographs of excavations, artifacts, coins, and pottery from New Testament sites
  • Extensive maps
  • Architectural floor plans of temples, palaces, and synagogues
  • Commentary on how archaeology relates to the Bible
  • Examination of modern excavation techniques and methods
  • A beginners' guide to understanding pottery, coins, temples, and inscriptions
