Bethsaida: Home of the Apostles
From The Publisher:
Archaeologists have spent the last decade investigating the ancient city of Bethsaida, the home of several disciples of Jesus, including Simon Peter. This study integrates ancient historical sources, archaeological discoveries, and geological research with the study of New Testament texts about this frequently mentioned city of Jesus.
"...an absolute must for anyone interested in the origins of Christianity. With careful analysis Strickert sorts through complex and diverse strands of literary traditions and connects them with the material finds that have come to light in the Bethsaida excavation."
Mark Appold, Truman State University
