Outlines of the Life of Our Lord was written as a compliment to the narratives of the Gospels. It relies on the fruits of archeological and historical research to provide the context for Christ’s earthly life. The work describes the political reality in Palestine, the forms of social and religious organization among the Jews, Jews religious practices, as well as the geography, both political and natural, of the region at the time of the Incarnation. It follows the narrative of the gospel events as depicted in traditional Catholic devotions, providing historical context as well as traditional commentary.
