Zondervan Illustrated Bible

Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary

focuses its attention on the text of the books of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Our distance from the thought of the biblical writers and the world in which they lived and wrote is arguably the greatest impediment to understanding these texts. After a brief essay that introduces each book, a verse-by-verse commentary follows. Drawing upon linguistic analysis, archaeological evidence, history, other ancient Near Eastern literatures, and the like, the commentary provides the historical and cultural background against which the texts can be read and understood. Like The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible, the commentary set strives to be both accessible and scholarly. And nearly every page has one or more color illustrations, making it, too, a visually engaging set. Because of ambiguities in the biblical texts, gaps in the historical and cultural record, scholarly differences assessing existing evidence, and differing approaches to textual criticism and historical method, final judgments as to questions of interpretation and meaning are often elusive. This does not mean that scholarly conclusions are not drawn. Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary strives to include these varying viewpoints but is honest and straightforward in stating that the conclusions it presents reflect a critical and theological position that is rooted in historic Christianity and is conservative/evangelical. Recommended for theological collections and research libraries.

Patterns of Evidence - Exodus

Patterns of Evidence - Exodus

For many people to believe the Bible, they are looking for proof that it's true. Despite all the archaeological evidence that has been found, people are still trying to figure out where the evidence comes into play regarding the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and everything that went along with that story from the Bible. From the ten plagues that hardened Pharoah's heart to the pilgrimage of the people for 40 years into the desert, even the fall of Jericho's walls. So why all the inconsistencies? Is there proof from the Bible, that the story has played out exactly as it was written? If so where is the proof in the world today that can validate the claims that it happened exactly as Exodus clearly lays out for the reader? Drawing on the experience of many biblical scholars, curators, archaeologists and scientists, film maker Timothy Mahoney documents his research into this compelling question to uncover whether this exodus of the Israelites truly happened or has the Bible clearly gotten it wrong. He journeys to Egypt, the Middle East, England and more in search for the answers in the documentary Patterns for Evidence Exodus. It will take his on a 12-year journey around the world to search for the same answers the world is waiting for and what he finds at the end, well it's up to you to decide if the evidence he uncovers validates what is written in the Bible. Using stunning animations, narrated by Kevin Sorbo, interviews with leading archaeologists like Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres. This 119 minute documentary also features bonuses like Behind the Music, From Film to Book, trailers and more.

Jerusalem an archaeological bio

Jerusalem An Archaeological Biography

Shanks, president of the Biblical Archaeology Sociey and editor of Understanding the Dead Sea Scrolls (Random, 1993), has produced a sumptuous commemorative volume to mark the "3,000th anniversary of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel." He lavishly uses well-chosen, high-quality color photos, drawings, and plans. Two pages of simplified time lines put the major events of the book in clear chronological perspective. The 14 chapters range from "Jerusalem before the Israelites" and "How David Conquered Jerusalem" to "Herodian Jerusalem" and "Modern and Crusader Jerusalem." Shanks writes in an informal style and keeps the archaeology relatively simple. Although he incorporates the latest research, he does not introduce anything new. His work is an informative coffee-table book for the educated public; students in the field will find it an interesting, albeit expensive, picture book and summary of the highlights of Jerusalem's archaeology.
