Millions of people across the world have heard of Jesus Christ, but how many are truly familiar with the key locations he frequented?

Following the chronology of Jesus’ life and ministry, and drawing especially on the Gospel of Luke, Peter Walker takes us from Bethlehem to Nazareth to the desert as we follow Jesus on his final journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. In each chapter particular attention is given to what Jesus did in that location, and to the authenticity of archaeological and recorded evidence of later pilgrims and historians. Building on the success of the first edition, this updated and expanded edition takes into account the most recent archaeological discoveries. Richly illustrated, and using maps, timelines, and feature boxes to highlight important themes, this is a rich and absorbing guide that provides a unique insight into Jesus’ world – an ideal companion for travellers to the Holy land or for scholars and pastors around the world.
