This is the first book to describe and analyze, sequentially and in detail, all the persons, places, times, and events mentioned in the Gospel accounts of Jesus’s last week in Jerusalem.

Part reference guide, part theological exploration, Eckhard Schnabel’s Jesus in Jerusalem uses the biblical text and recent archaeological evidence to find meaning in Jesus’s final days on earth. Schnabel profiles the seventy-two people and groups and the seventeen geographic locations named in the four passion narratives. Placing the events of Jesus’s last days in chronological order, he unpacks their theological significance, finding that Jesus’s passion, death, and resurrection can be understood historically as well as from a faith perspective.

Top Highlights

“The reference to Passover (τὸ πάσχα, to pascha) is prominent in the preparations for the Last Supper,308 which indicates that Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples was a Passover meal.” (Page 206)

“The rabbinic evidence shows that there were indeed disputes and disparities in Jewish Palestine regarding the Passover calendar and that some people offered their Passover sacrifices early, for a variety of reasons.” (Page 147)

“Given our earlier considerations, this leaves ad 30 as the year of Jesus’ crucifixion.22” (Page 140)

“John’s dating of Jesus’ anointing in Bethany is historically plausible.” (Page 141)

“In October 2016, a team of scientists from the National Technical University of Athens, under the direction of Professor Antonia Moropoulou, exposed the original surface of the tomb in the Edicule, removing the marble cladding that had covered the tomb since at least ad 1555; the restoration of the Edicule was finished in March 2017.” (Page 137)

    I would like to refer Logos customers to the Amazon review. Consider Schnabel's other commentaries like ZEC: Commentary on Acts. Consider Craig A Evans forward.
