Philips City: From Bethsaida to Julias Description
Review Well-written and enormously informative.The Catholic Biblical QuarterlyThose who enjoy biblical archaeology will appreciate the report of the excavations found here and the authorâs efforts to relate these findings to the gospel traditions. The Bible Today âA fascinating study of how the temple and city fell into ruin, and makes for a thoughtful and important read for any curios about this period of history. Philipâs City is a strong addition to history collections with a focus on the era of the Bible. The Midwest Book Review Superbly written, this significantly enlarged second edition is a treasure trove of nuanced information interpreting an archaeological site that in recent years has moved to center stage in the interpretation of biblical texts. Covering the story of the Bethsaida project from its inception to its current state, the author weaves striking archaeological finds anchored in their respective historical contexts together with exegetical analyses of the respective biblical and extra-biblical texts. Scholars together with pastors, educators, and lay people alike will find this study, richly illustrated with photos, maps, and diagrams, to be a provocative resource not only for further critical research but for study and discussion purposes as well. This fascinating study will prove to be an indispensable tool in the search for articulating Christian origins.Dr. Mark Appold Associate Professor of Religious Studies Truman State University Scholars and general readers alike will welcome this exciting and highly informative book. Fred Strickert, long-time staff member of the Bethsaida excavations, shows why âit is crucial that our search for understanding ancient Bethsaida be carried out with a book in one hand and a trowel in the other.â He demonstrates the fertility of the study of Jesus and the Gospels in conjunction with Josephus and the archaeologistâs spade. Given the rich synthesis here of recent scholarship and fresh data, this book will surely be noted as a significant contribution to our understanding of Herodian Palestine and the Jesus movement.Douglas E. Oakman, PhD Professor of Religion Pacific Lutheran University Tacoma, Washington Fred M. Strickertâs remarkable Philipâs City: From Bethsaida to Julias combines the results of two decades of archaeological excavations at et-Tell, identified as the old Geshurite capital from the Iron Age, and much later as Herod Philipâs Bethsaida, with numismatic, palaeobotanical, literary, and other evidence to produce a coherent, readable, and outstandingly well documented account of this important city. Richly illustrated with photographs of numerous significant finds, maps, and architectural reconstructions, Philipâs City transforms a silent tell in the Southern Golan into a living and vibrant city, the home of Davidâs wife Maachah, mother of Absolom, and the city visited by Jesus.John S.
