Many books have been written about John’s portrayal of Jesus but Temple and Tomb is the first to combine cutting-edge, twenty-first century insights drawn from archaeology, history, and biblical studies in its bid to cast fresh light on the beautiful and timeless Gospel of John.
Written for the interested non-specialist and ideal for both individual and group study, this detailed exploration of John’s gospel breathes new life into familiar episodes, showing how an understanding of John’s first-century Jewish context can allow us to understand afresh many of the key events of Jesus’ life.
Engaging and very readable, Temple and Tomb presents many new and in some cases surprising insights into John’s narrative and delivers them with freshness and clarity. It is an accessible introduction to some of the subtleties underlying the fourth gospel’s presentation of Jesus and an ideal aid for those wishing to deepen their understanding of John’s timeless classic.
