The Gospels of the New Testament describe the life of Jesus of Nazareth, from his birth in Bethlehem and his travels through Galilee to his trial and death in Jerusalem. In the Footsteps of Jesus goes even deeper into the story of Jesus' life by following his path through the Holy Land on richly detailed maps and bringing each pivotal place to life through the latest archaeological and historical discoveries. Breathtaking photography and unique period artifacts complement fascinating text and specially created maps by National Geographic cartographers.


In the Footsteps of Jesus illustrates not only the stories of Jesus’ life but also the characters and events that shaped his journey and ultimately made him one of the most famous figures the world has ever known. This compelling and beautiful book traces Jesus' path from Bethlehem to Nazareth; throughout his "mission triangle" of Lower Galilee and into the Decapolis; and ultimately on his journey to Jerusalem, the Garden of Gethsemane, and Golgotha.


Expertly crafted text describes what is known and speculated about Jesus' youth, life, and work while showing the larger events that combined to shape the world in which he lived. Both the text and sidebars describe the places in Jesus' world that can still be experienced by visitors, as well as key sites that have since disappeared but can be reconstructed by forensic means.


Captivating elements include quotes attributed to Jesus; historical data derived from Jewish sources such as the Mishnah, and Roman sources such as Josephus; census data and other documents; key facts, and insightful main text. Newcomers to biblical history as well as the devoted will find this an invaluable reference and a gorgeous book for the home library.

          I thought this was a DVD when I ordered, but jumped right in reading when it arrived. Not really footsteps (since we can't quite know), but very good historical context to what was happening at this time.

              I loved this book so much that I have already given one as a gift. Being able to put the history of what was going on at the time Jesus would have been alive is amazing! There are so many things in the Bible that are hard to understand without having the history! Loved it!

                  I'm not done reading this book yet as it is rather large but so far it is very interesting. I'm learning so much about our Lord, it is so interesting to see where He walked when He was on earth. When I start reading I have a terrible time putting it down, that's how interesting it is. Not only is it interesting but very knowledgeable. The photography is gorgeous.

                    Even though I wish I had seen this before I went to Israel it is a wonderful tool for reinforcing and giving considerable depth to that memorable personal experience.

                        More than 1,500 years ago, ancient writings were buried that offered alternative narratives about Jesus of Nazareth. Rediscovered within the last century, these texts—once considered scandalous and deemed heretical—offer more questions than answers. Secret Lives of Jesus examines these mysterious lost stories of Christ, exploring the fundamental questions surrounding the texts. Who wrote them and why? How do they compare to the accepted New Testament gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John? And why were the stories forgotten for so long?

                        Jesus Christ is one of the most well-known names in the history of mankind. He is the core of belief for millions of Christians and his story has provided rich material for thousands of books and films. Yet, mysteries surrounding his life still remain. Major events like the Nativity, the Miracles and even the Crucifixion have been adapted, embellished and rewritten over the course of hundreds of years. National Geographic re-examines the crucial elements of his story and questions basic modern assumptions to reveal some surprising and often shocking details about his life and ministry.

                        In a mere three or four decades, the seeds of a global religion spread across the Roman Empire. In an age with no Internet, no mass media, no planes, trains or fossil fuel, how did it happen? National Geographic investigates the mysterious decades following Jesus’ death, and the group of 12 common men who traveled thousands of miles, risked their lives and sacrificed everything to spread Jesus’ message.

These ornaments feature three variations on a simple Nativity scene, in keeping with the story of Jesus’ humble birth. Handcrafted at a family-owned studio in Bethlehem that was founded in 1880.
