Archaeological excavation of the ancient city of Bethsaida has retrieved a wealth of information on some of the most intriguing topics from 10th century BCE to 4th century CE. This volume includes reports on archaeological and geological findings from 1997 to 2006 and the cultural and historical contexts of the findings. This volume completes the series.



Twenty years of excavations at Bethsaida are marked with a timely publication of the latest results at this important Galilean Site. Interdisciplinary in content, this volume will be a helpful addition to the library of those interested in the Iron Age and the Roman era, the times of the Old and New Testaments.' (James K. Hoffmeier)
