Product Description

Archaeology and the Bible: New Testament features 50 archaeological finds and dozens of photos that show the Bible's accuracy and explain the culture and customs of the Roman world during the time of Jesus, his disciples and the apostle Paul. For example:
•In the past, some scholars doubted that Pontius Pilate, the governor of Judea during Jesus'time, really existed, until his inscription was found in the amphitheater in Caesarea.
•Recently, two first century A.D. ossuaries (limestone boxes for holding bones) that mention important New Testament people have been found. One mentions Caiaphas, the high priest of Jesus'time. The other mentions "James . . . the brother of Jesus."
•Eight passages in the New Testament refer to a place in Jerusalem called in Greek "the Praetorium." Recently, archaeologists have identified some Herodian walls, foundations and pavement near the present Jaffa Gate that conform to ancient descriptions of the Praminated.
