Excavations at Sepphoris by James F Strange( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume concerns the excavations at ancient Sepphoris, Israel, from 1983 to 1987. It contains a detailed report on the history of the site from ancient literary sources, a history of excavations and investigations, a report of the excavations against the tower ("the Citadel"), a report of other 5 X 5 m. probes near the Citadel, and eight 5 X 5 meter areas excavated in a building called a "church" or "basilica" in 1931, but now known to be a villa. The narrative incorporates details of small finds, coins, and pottery, with pottery drawings and architectural and stratigraphic drawings. The usefulness of the book is in reporting the archaeological data and integrating the archaeology into the ancient history of the city and of Galilee, of ancient Judaism, and of ancient Christianity
Archaeology, the rabbis, and early Christianity : the social and historical setting of Palestinian Judaism and Christianity by Eric M Meyers( Book )

15 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time an accurate picture of rabbinic Judaism and Christian origins in Roman Palestine emerges as two active field archaeologists--one Jewish and the other Christian-- integrate historical literature with current archaeological findings. Their unique blending of literary and nonliterary approaches to the past allows a more reliable reconstruction of this critical and formative era of Western civilization"--Back cover

Changing changelessness : on the genesis and development of the doctrine of divine immutability in the Ancient and Hellenic period by Milton Wilcox( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project will track and explain the development of the Doctrine of Divine Immutability from early mythological and scriptural source material that seems to indicate that divine entities are changeable into metaphysical systems that demand a perfectly consistent deity. The Doctrine of Divine Immutability is a philosophical and theological postulate that has long been a staple of systematic metaphysics and theology, but its function in robust and fully formed systems is different than its function when it is first generated in Ancient Greece and Judah. Methodologically mostly primary sources are studied and compared with interpretive help from relevant secondary sources. Once the generation and evolution of this doctrine is understood, a more holistic understanding of the relationship between religion and philosophy will be evident. Additionally a more robust understanding of Middle Platonism and 1st and 2nd century Christianity and their relationship to Roman Stoicism will be achieved. Of particular importance to contemporary scholarship this work will allow us to understand the doctrine in its context and will shield us from anachronistic readings of the arguments that are bound to cause fundamental errors in scholarship

Dirt, bones, potsherds and stones : Archaeologists probe the Galilee in the Hellenistic and Roman periods( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every occupation of land in any period leaves its human imprint. What looks at first to be a chaotic scatter of bits and pieces within archaeological trenches can resolve itself into settlement patterns, architecture, human movement, dedication of space to special uses, and even the scope and layout of a city. In these lectures we will learn how archaeologists make their inferences and examine some of them. Was there an early Christian sanctuary at Capernaum? How central to Galilean life was Sepphoris? Did Nazareth really exist in the first century? How do we recognize ancient synagogues without inscriptions or Jewish symbols on the structure?"--Container
