Jerusalem Discoveries from the Time of Jesus

A BAS Library video lecture series by James D. Tabor

In a BAS Library exclusive collection of video lectures, renowned Biblical scholar James D. Tabor reviews some of the most exciting and controversial archaeological discoveries from Jerusalem in recent years, including his important findings from the Talpiot tombs and the Mt. Zion excavation. In his characteristically accessible and familiar style, Tabor examines questions surrounding the authenticity of the James ossuary, spells out why he believes the Talpiot tomb may have been revered as the burial place of Jesus and his family and explores what the Mt. Zion excavations are revealing about the Jerusalem that Jesus knew.

Since the public controversy over the Talpiot “Jesus” family tomb broke in 2007, much has happened behind the scenes. Tabor’s lecture “The Talpiot ‘Jesus’ Tomb: What’s the Latest?” brings things up to date, examines what we know for certain about who may have been buried in the Talpiot tomb, and how new evidence is helping to separate mere speculation from solid historical and archaeological interpretation.

The late Father Bargil Pixner’s well-known proposals on the location of religious sites on Mt. Zion have received some popular acceptance, including in the pages of BAR. In the lecture “The Search for Jerusalem’s Essene Gate and the Church of the Apostles,” Tabor offers an updated evaluation of Pixner’s theories in light of recent textual studies and the findings from the ongoing Mt. Zion excavations.
