Jesus and Archaeology, obra recentemente publicada, merece atenção

Dezenas de arqueólogos e biblistas reunidos em Jerusalém se perguntam: Como as novas descobertas arqueológicas podem contribuir para explicar o mundo, a vida e o pensamento de Jesus de Nazaré?

Desta discussão nasceu o livro Jesus e a Arqueologia, organizado por James H. Charlesworth, e publicado pela editora Eerdmans, que parece digno de atenção. Embora eu ainda não conheça a obra, os autores são respeitados especialistas na área.

CHARLESWORTH, James H. (ed.) Jesus and Archaeology. Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 2006, 739 p.

Diz a sinopse da editora:

Archaeology still has many things to reveal about the life and world of Jesus of Nazareth. To touch a two-thousand-year-old pot held by a Jew who lived in a small village frequented by Jesus can bring us closer to understanding those who were touched by Jesus. Jesus and Archaeology contains the revised and edited lectures that leading archaeologists and biblical scholars presented at a gathering in Jerusalem to celebrate the new millennium. Many contributors came directly from their excavations in places like Bethsaida, Capernaum, Nazareth, and Jerusalem to share their discoveries and insights, focusing on the question In what ways do new archaeological discoveries clarify the world, life, and thought of Jesus from Nazareth? Readers of Jesus and Archaeology will gain many new insights into the life and times of this fascinating Galilean Jew.
