From Jesus to Christ. the first Christians ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nazareth, where he grew up, was about four miles from the cosmopolitan urban center of Sepphoris, one of the Roman provincial cities. And while Rome defined one dimension of Jesus' world, the other was symbolized by the great Temple in Jerusalem. The film also reveals an excavation of new theories leading to Jesus⁰́₉ crucifixion - likely an act of the Romans - with little notice taken by Jewish people
