The Land of Jesus Then & Now By G.S.P. Freeman-Grenville
This handsome guide to Jesus in the Holy Land starts with what Moses saw from Mount Nebo. We look at the land, and then at its rulers and people. Jesus' ministry begins with the arrest of John the Baptist, which precedes the ministry near Lake Tiberias, at Capernaum, and the excursions to Tyre, Sidon, Caesarea Philippi and the Decapolis. We trace the journey from Jericho to Jerusalem, Jesus' teachings in the Holy City, and the events that followed - the Passover, the Passion, and the Resurrection.
Illustrated with over a hundred vistas, town maps and plans, and holy sites in words and pictures, this lavish guide to Jesus in the Holy Land follows the course of the life of Jesus.
"This is a pictorial guide to Jesus in the Holy Land; it is profusely illustrated with almost 150 photographs, diagrams and maps. It starts with what Moses saw from Mount Nebo, because the view includes almost all the country in which Jesus' life took place. "
"So we start by looking at the land, and then at its rulers and people. Bethlehem is followed by the Egyptian Coptic traditions of the Flight into Egypt and the return to Nazareth."
For very many centuries there have been arguments about the dates of the various events. The most modern and reliable research suggests that Jesus was born in 12 BC, and that John the Baptist was murdered in AD 35, thus placing the Crucifixion in AD 36, the same year that Pontius Pilate was withdrawn from Judaea."
