Description

Understanding the land of Jesus is a necessary component to comprehending the message he proclaimed. From the beginning of the four Gospels until their end, the Evangelists assume that we possess an intimate knowledge of the historical and geographical stage onto which Jesus stepped. For most Christian readers this is unfortunately not true. Many have not had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land. Even for those who have, it can prove to be a confusing experience. Much about life in this land has changed over the course of two millennia.

The maps in this book and the text that accompanies them can serve as a guide for the Christian reader to navigate the geographical stages in the Gospel accounts, so that the reader can be aided in their pursuit to follow the steps of the Master and to grasp more clearly the message he preached.

About the Author(s)

Michael Avi-Yonah (1904–1974) was Professor of Archaeology and History of Art at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 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.

R. Steven Notley is Distinguished Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins on the New York City campus of Nyack College and director of its graduate programs in Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins. He is at the cutting edge of modern New Testament research, combining his philological training with an intimate firsthand knowledge of biblical geography. He is the author of many books and articles. His works include, with Anson F. Rainey, The Sacred Bridge: Carta’s Atlas of the Biblical World (Jerusalem 2006, 2014), and with his mentor David Flusser he collaborated on the historical biography of Jesus, The Sage from Galilee: Rediscovering Jesus’ Jewish Genius (Grand Rapids 2007). Notley co-authored with Ze’ev Safrai an annotated translation of Eusebius’ important description of Roman Palestine, Eusebius, Onomasticon: A Triglott Edition with Notes and Commentary (Leiden 2005), and he recently rejoined Safrai for their second work, a pioneering collection, translation and annotation of the earliest rabbinic parables that provide the literary and religious context for the parables of Jesus, Parables of the Sages (Jerusalem 2011).
