Where Jesus Walked: Hosted by Hershel Shanks
“A highly professional and utterly delightful hour-and-a-half of the best and latest thinking of current archaeology on first-century Palestine—the time of Jesus. The videography is stunning. Shanks’ questions are those the layperson would (or should) ask, and the answers offered are clear, concise and to the point . . . This DVD belongs in every college, church and synagogue library in the world.”
