What was Jerusalem like at the time of the Savior's birth? How did Satan's temptations of Jesus prepare him for the beginnings of his public ministry? Why were people astonished at the doctrine Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount? If you've wondered about such questions, you'll appreciate the insights and answers contained in From Bethlehem through the Sermon on the Mount, an outstanding collection of a dozen chapters by Latter-day Saint scholars presenting up-to-the-minute research and analysis of the Savior's birth and the early years of his life. This book provides the benefit of recent scholarship viewed through the lens of the Restoration.
This is a great set of books for anyone who is sincerely interested in exposing themselves to the very latest research regarding the life of our Savior. The authors of this book have done an outstanding job of providing us with pertinent and exciting information that has given me a renewed interest in studying the New Testament Gospels. Fantastic read, recommend it to all!
