From Bethsaida to JuliasBook - 2011
In this major revision of his prize-winning 1998 book, Bethsaida: Home of the Apostles, Fred Strickert presents nonspecialist readers with the latest findings in the ongoing excavation and evaluation of et-Tell, now identified by many archaeologists as the site of biblical-era Bethsaida. New discoveries have linked the site back to the Iron Age time of David and revealed new connections to the tetrarch Philip and his family. Strickert develops an explanation for the decline and destruction of the city sharply different from his previous conclusion. Readers of Bethsaida: Home of the Apostles will want to follow the story into this sequel.
