This is the introduction to an exciting NEW SERIES on my Youtube Channel I am short-titling “Jesus Archaeology.” The idea is to highlight the ways in which scientifically conducted archaeology in the Holy Land has contributed to our historical understanding of the “Jesus Movement” or the rise of early Christianity. How do texts, sites, and artifacts- world hand-in-hand to bring us to a better understanding of the past? What archaeology is and is not…and what are our purposes and goals in digging a site.
Episode I: The Tales Tombs Tell: Ten Jerusalem Tombs from the Time of Jesus will be posted December 20th as the Winter Solstice Begins! Don’t miss it!
