Book by Mark Fox
Temple and Tomb: Fresh Light on John's Gospel
Publisher: Spirit and Sage
Many books have been written about John’s portrayal of Jesus but Temple and Tomb
is the first to combine cutting-edge, twenty-first century insights drawn from archaeology, history, and biblical studies in its bid to cast fresh light on the gospel that John wrote 2000 years ago. Written for the interested non-specialist and ideal for both individual and group study, Dr Mark Fox’s detailed exploration of the Gospel of John breathes new life into familiar episodes, showing how an understanding of John’s first-century Jewish context can allow us to understand afresh many of the key events of Jesus’ life.
Engaging and very readable, Temple and Tomb
presents many new and in some cases surprising insights into John’s narrative and delivers them with freshness and clarity. It is an accessible introduction to some of the subtleties underlying the fourth gospel’s presentation of Jesus and an ideal aid for those wishing to deepen their understanding of John’s timeless classic.
