Understanding the life of Jesus is a necessary component to comprehending the message he proclaimed. The maps and brief texts in Understanding the Life of Jesus serve as a guide for the Christian reader to navigate the geographical stages in the Gospel accounts. The goal of this book is that its readers may grasp more clearly the message Jesus preached throughout his short, but powerful ministry on earth.

He wrote numerous books and papers, among them In the Time of Rome and Byzantium, A Historical Geography of the Holy Land from the Return to Zion until the Arab Conquest, and Gazetteer of Roman Palestine. He planned and constructed a model of Second Temple Jerusalem at 1:50 scale, now on display at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
