From The Publisher:

This first volume of a planned four-volume set reports the initial findings of the internationally recognized Bethsaida Excavations Project. The Project is uncovering one of the most important New Testament sites, lost to the world since the first century.

Bethsaida was where the apostles Peter and Andrew were born, home to Philip, and where Jesus performed miracles. It was in Bethsaida and neighboring towns where Jesus began his public ministry.

Chapters examine the finds of the first years of excavations, including pottery, coins, and much more, as well as Bethsaida's place in historical literature.

The second volume continues the effort of examining the findings and includes several over-sized maps.


"The volume is... well worth the attention of both archaeologists and NT scholars."
—Thomas R. W. Longstaff, Religious Studies Review

"The editors are to be congratulated for producing such a useful and timely volume... [They] have demonstrated that useful archaeological data can be published in an inexpensive, attractive form. They have mixed scientific reports with literary studies to provide a range of information that can be useful to most scholars.
—Victor H. Matthews, Biblical Archaeologist
