Even since the Gospels were written there have been questions about the momentous events that occurred during the final days of Jesus. Renowned archaeologist Shimon Gibson breaks new ground examining these critical last days using his extraordinary access to firsthand archaeological findings as principal evidence. Gibson explains: 'The purpose of this book is to unravel once and for all the mystery surrounding the final days of Jesus in Jerusalem: why he went there; how he came to be arrested, tried, and crucified; and where his place of burial was located. There is no doubt that some of my conclusions regarding Jesus and Jerusalem may be controversial'. Describing the events of the final days of Jesus chronologically, beginning with his entrance into Jerusalem on a donkey and ending with his burial in a tomb after having been crucified, Gibson unveils a vivid picture of first-century Jerusalem; its monuments, streets, and houses; and of course, the Jewish Temple that was the jewel in the crown of the city. Throughout Gibson revels how archaeology has a major role to play not only in how the gospels should be read and understood, but also in understanding Jesus in his own world.
