A Jesus Hideout in Jordan?: Mapping Ancient Textual Traditions
By James Tabor, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Tabor combines clues from the Gospel of John, the story of Elijah, the Dead Sea Scrolls and other historical writings that point to the location of a Jesus hideout east of Jordan, near Calim. He demonstrates how the combination of archaeology, historical documents such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the bible texts produces a unique picture of the Nazarene movement and the geography of Jesus’ life.
