In his concluding remarks, Charlesworth notes the wealth of archaeological data now available that illuminates life in ancient Palestine between the time of Herod the Great and the destruction of the Temple. He concludes that, because of the preponderance of information, "biblical scholars ultimately no longer have the presumed luxury of avoiding data from the times and places in which the biblical records took shape and were edited. For a New Testament scholar to disavow the importance of archaeology for New Testament studies, including Jesus Research, is a form of myopia. It leaves the Gospels as mere stories or relics of ancient rhetoric" (p. 694). The importance of Jesus and Archaeology is that it makes much of this data available in a volume that is accessible to scholars and students alike.
added by Christa_Josh | editJournal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Ralph K. Hawkins (Dec 1, 2007)
"This is a book suitable for upper division
undergraduate courses, graduate courses, and is recommended reading for New Testament
scholars interested in the ways in which archaeology is brought to bear on Jesus research."
