This relatively brief work by New Testament scholar William Sanday (with assistance from Paul Waterhouse), entitled Sacred Sites of the Gospels (1903), is ground-breaking in the way that it attempts to blend critical scholarship of the Gospels with the pioneering archeology of the Palestine during the 19th (and early 20th) century. During this period, as part of critical discussions regarding the historical (and geographic) accuracy of the Gospel narratives, various sites in Judea and Galilee were identified as possible locations for famous Gospel sites—Capernaum, Emmaus, Bethany, Calvary, the Tomb of Jesus, and many others. Sanday explores these possibilities, commenting on a number of specific verses and passages in the process. Even though our knowledge of the geography of the Gospels has been expanded considerably today, you will still find this classic study informative, and a welcome addition to your library.
The printed edition contains more than 50 photos and maps, and these have been turned into interactive Map and Photo sets in PC Study Bible (under the "Media" menu). The text of the work itself can be accessed from the Book and Commentary menus, under the category "Classic New Testament Studies".
NOTE: This title is also available in the 3-volume Jesus and the Gospels bundle of classic critical studies.
