Jesus: Uncovering the Facts
A summary of historical research concerning evidence for the dates of Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection.
The life of one Jewish rabbi – Jesus of Nazareth – has been the subject of discussion, debate and wonder for over two thousand years. His public ministry, which commenced around the age of thirty, lasted for just three and a half years, resulting in a movement that has transformed millions of lives and changed the course of history.
The implications of Jesus’ message and ministry are profound and challenging for every culture and generation. Therefore it is not surprising that the details recorded in the Bible accounts have been scrutinized for accuracy and sometimes criticized.
Can we rely on the accounts of Jesus’ life, as described by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John? Does historical evidence give weight to the claims of the scriptures?
Michael Shaw tackles these difficult questions in this well-researched investigation into the life of Jesus, with particular emphasis on chronology. Filled with historical data, yet fast-paced and gripping, this book looks into some of the mysteries surrounding a world-changing historical figure and uncovers facts that have implications for our lives today.
