Jerusalem in the Time of Jesus

By Jodi Magness, Archaeologist Sponsored by the Dr. Jonathan J. Lu and Sayoko Lu Biblical Geography Endowment Fund Archaeology enables us to reconstruct with a great degree of accuracy the city of Jerusalem as it appeared in the first century CE, where Jesus spent his final days on earth. This slide-illustrated lecture provides an overview of key sites associated with Jesus in Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount; the Lithostratos pavement and Arch of Ecce Homo; and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.  We also consider the evidence for the historicity of the traditions associating Jesus with some of these sites.
