Excavating Jesus book. John Dominic Crossan excavates the exegesis, and Jonathan Reed describes the archaeological layers, in this synthesis on first century Palestine. Crossan covers the NT texts, Gospel of Thomas, Nag Hammadi Codices, Q Gospel, Gospel of Peter et. to excavate back to the historical Jesus. Of course contemporary writings from Josephus, Philo, Tacitus etc are also covered.

Excavating Jesus - John Dominic Crossan. Imagine two ways of answering those questions: by stone or text, by ground or gospel, by material remains or scribal remains, by the work of the archaeologist or the work of the exegete. Why did Jesus happen when and where he happened? Why then? Why there? Sharpen the question a little. It is not just a case of archaeology or exegesis, but of archaeology and exegesis.

Can the stones of ancient Palestine speak to us about the real Jesus and his message? .

Can the stones of ancient Palestine speak to us about the real Jesus and his message? Are there ways to discover the historical Jesus by sifting throu. While the phenomenal advances in our Christianity are well known, the equally significant archaeological discoveries are much less familiar.

In their unique collaboration, Excavating Jesus: Beneath the Stones, Behind the Texts, John Dominic Crossan and Jonathan L. Reed explore and weave together the ten most significant archaeological findings from ancient Palestine with the ten most significant textual discoveries of modern biblical studies. Crossan and Reed lead us on a pilgrim's view tour of Jerusalem's magnificent Second Temple that fills our senses with the sights, smells and sounds of the priestly sacrificial rites occurring there on a daily basis as Jewish and Gentile pilgrims from all over the Roman Empire crowded there.

The premier historical Jesus scholar joins a brilliant archaeologist to illuminate the life and teaching of Jesus against the background of his world.

There have been phenomenal advances in the historical understanding of Jesus and his world and times, but also huge, lesser known advances in first–century Palestine archaeology that explain a great deal about Jesus, his followers, and his teachings. This is the first book that combines the two and it does it in a fresh, accessible way that will interest both biblical scholars and students and also the thousands of lay readers of Biblical Archaeology Review (150,000+ circulation), National Geographic, and other archaeology and ancient history books and magazines. Each chapter of the book focuses on a major modern archaeological or textual discovery and shows how that discovery opens a window onto a major feature of Jesus's life and teachings.

Reviews:
  • Arabella V.
I have read more than one of Crossan's books. He is an elite scholar of Christian religion and typically writes for his peers at an advanced level, Extremely detailed, well sourced and nuanced, this is not for the faint of heart or the casual reader. It will take an investment of time and interest to get through it all but at the end of the day, no stone is left unturned. Convincing, thorough, illuminating but not terse or succinct.

I recommend it but also that you buckle up before you open it.
  • Kajishakar
I have not encountered a more cogent presentation correlating Biblical archaeology with exegesis. Crossan and Reed possess formidable academic knowledge on the subject matter, yet present it in beautiful, readable prose that rivets rather than alienates. I seldom reread a book, but am well on my way through a second reading of this one.
  • Daiktilar
An interesting combination of archaeology, anthropology and theology. Focusing on the discoveries of archaeological significance in Israel over the last 100 years or so, the book takes the reader through such discoveries as the James ossuary, the Temple Mount, the ruins at Qumran and other sites (notably Ceasaria Maritima, Sepphoris, Nazereth and Capernaum) to compare what archaeology says with what was written - both by contemporary authors (Josephus, Philo, etc) as well as the Biblical accounts to arrive at a picture of first century Judea.

John Dominic Crossan has written many books on the subject of the historical Jesus, and this is not going to broach any new insights if you are familiar with his work. However, it will provide the reader with an interesting perspective from a more archaeological point of view, which will be of interest to the non-religious reader in particular.

A bit thick for non-nerds. At times I was tempted to skip through parts, but had to go back because everything is relevant. So intriguing I leant it to my pastor. Really puts you in the place and time of Jesus and the social and political situations the citizens of that era dealt with.
  • Fordrellador
In preparing for an upcoming trip to Israel and Palestine, I wanted to understand more about the ancient sites that would help me to connect to what life was like in the times of Jesus and how to read the biblical accounts of his ministry with more insight. "Excavating Jesus" may have lingered more on the details of the archeology for me, but I found the book describing the layers of scriptural writing to be fascinating. The diagrams and pictures that portray what life was like during Jesus' time as well as the political context provided vivid images and more appreciation of why Jesus' path of radical teachings inevitably led to the crucifixion. The book also laid a foundation of historical understanding for why the current political conflicts are so deeply imbedded in the Jewish-Christian-Muslim cultures that go back millenia. I skimmed some of the more obtuse details while my husband, the wannabe archeologist, just devoured them. While he loved all the details, I sought the bigger picture. Both of us were satisfied when we read this book. We are now even more eager for our trip to Palestine.
  • Buriwield
The idea of excavating the layers of biblical text with the methodology of archeology is brilliant. Facts without context s are meaningless.
  • Spilberg
Excavating Jesus is a rich and approachable study butit does not reach the depth of analysis delivered in some of his other books. While I was disappointed in this regard, it is still well worth the read.
A powerful book by one of the foremost experts in the study of Jesus and the biblical text. To catch a glimpse of who Jesus was and is as well as to read the biblical text within the context of that time and place is to understand more fully how those same stories are even more applicable to human kind today. A must read for anyone who considers themselves persons of faith.
