With Jesus Through Galilee: According to the Fifth Gospel
From The Publisher:
"...Five gospels record the life of Jesus. Four you will find in books and one you will find in the land they call holy. Read the fifth gospel and the world of the four will open to you."
Bargil Pixner has led countless groups through the country. With his well-founded knowledge of the Holy Land and its history he draws a lively and persuasive image of the times of turmoil in which Jesus lived.
Recent excavations and discoveries shed light on contemporary groups such as the Natzoreans, Essenes Pharisees, and Zealots. With the help of pictures and historical maps the reader can follow the inner development of Jesus and his disciples and their role in society. Against the backdrop of the landscape of Galilee emerges the figure of Jesus the compassionate man. Includes a historical folding map in the back.
