Join distinguished professor Dr. Craig A. Evans on a journey to some of the most significant New Testament archaeological sites. Filmed on-site in Israel’s Galilee region, Dead Sea region, and Jerusalem, this course will give you insight into first-century socioeconomic life and will help you grasp the historical and biblical context of Jesus’ ministry.

As the course takes you through cities and other locations around the Sea of Galilee, you’ll learn where Jesus and his disciples walked and lived, including Capernaum, the headquarters of Jesus’ Galilean ministry. Discover how the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls reveal how deeply rooted in the Old Testament the early Christian movement was, and hear how these texts have been preserved for future generations. Explore burial practices and evidence of crucifixion in the first century in Jerusalem.

    The expertise of Dr. Evan makes this a valuable resource, as he brings together a wealth of information for each video topic, such as excavation history, biblical references, historical references, and his own personal knowledge. Supporting his teaching are a few guest experts who provide good commentary. Also, there are helpful 3-D digital illustrations; for example, you see the Dead Sea, located 1,300 below sea level, in relationship to the Jordan Rift Valley. While the videos were filmed in Israel, that opportunity was largely wasted. 90% of the time, we're looking at a talking head. Landscape and manuscript shots are shown too briefly and not labeled. Overall, this a good resource that shows us how the discoveries of archaeology helps us understand the life and times of Jesus. Another recommended resource is BAR's DVD entitled, "An Archaeological Search for Jesus"
