Product Description

The artifacts excavated from the ruins of the Masada yield fascinating insights into the world of the New Testament and the times when King Herod, Pilate, Jesus, Peter, and Paul lived.

This book invites you to visit Herod's palaces, walk the robber-infested road taken by the good Samaritan, and see lamps that may have been like those carried by the ten virgins and sandals that made footprints on the shores of Galilee or the deserts of Judea.

Every item from Masada suggests something about the setting in which Christianity arose. These essays better help us understand the people, politics, and material culture of the world of the New Testament.
