Archaeology and Jesus Miniseries

No place on earth has arrested the attention of adventurers and archaeologists like the Holy Land. But does what we dig up in Israel bear resemblance to the stories we read about Jesus in the Gospels? To answer this question, Archaeology + Jesus follows two paths. You’ll explore the process of archaeology with top experts digging in Israel today. And along the way, you’ll join New Testament scholar, Dr. Craig Evans, as he reveals groundbreaking finds that illuminate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
