From The Publisher:

Recent archaeological discoveries flood light on the biblical text. This heavily illustrated survey, with fascinating detail, describes the scope of archaeology's contribution to New Testament scholarship.

Veteran archaeologist John McRay shows the pervasive influences of society, architecture, and religion on the peoples of the first century. He describes the splendor of the building masterpieces of Herod the Great and sorts thorugh conflicting evidence about the buildings and streets Jesus saw in Jerusalem. The reader tours sites associated with the ministry of Jesus, the journeys of Paul, and the seven churches of Revelation.

Numerous diagrams, maps, charts, and more than 150 photographs illuminate the study. A glossary defines technical terms, and extensive endnotes and bibliography guide the more advanced student to in-depth discussions.
