Michael Hesemann’s archaeological biography, Mary of Nazareth, was a best-selling work that has been translated into several languages. In this work Hesemann set out once again to the Holy Land on a search for traces of the New Testament. In this sequel, his interest is focused on the central figure of human history: Jesus of Nazareth, whom Christians acknowledge as the Son of God and the Messiah.
In this unique book, Hesemann is tracking down the profound mystery of the Incarnation by which God became man, striving to deepen our understanding of the historical Jesus of Nazareth and the world in which he lived. With Bible in hand, he diligently visited all the places where Jesus lived and worked—Bethlehem, Nazareth, Capernaum, and Jerusalem.
