Visiting Capernaum

With John DeLancey

Capernaum was the city that Jesus called home during his three years of ministry. You can see first century ruins at the archaeological site of Capernaum, as we saw when we visited Capernaum last year during our Book & The Space Archaeological Adventure Tour. The synagogue where John DeLancey recounted some of the Gospel stories of Jesus’ activities in Capernaum was built later, several centuries later, but probably on the same site as the synagogue from Jesus’ time.

"A Week in the Life of a Roman Centurion"

With Gary Burge

This is a fictional account of life in the first century, the time of Jesus, by a New Testament scholar. In order to make biblical research accessible to the average person, books like this engage the imagination and take us back to the same period that we read about in the gospels. It's a short book, packed with a lot of biblical information in a very accessible format. I enjoyed reading it and I enjoyed my conversation with Gary Burge, giving the background of the project and some of the perspectives that he included in the book.
