A close study of the archaeological evidence of first century Galilee provides a historical context for the movements of Jesus, says an Irish theologian.
And it is time that New Testament scholars paid closer attention to the recent archaeological discoveries that provide that historical context for the beginning of Jesus' ministry.
"It is time to bring spade and text together," said Sean Freyne, the first of three internationally recognized experts to speak this week at Rocky Mountain College on the "Historical Jesus in the 21st Century."
In the same series, Adolpho Roitman lectures tonight and James Charlesworth tomorrow night.
