Jerusalem in the first century A.D. was a far cry from its humble beginniigs in the days of King David. In Jerusalem: City of the Great King - the author traces the growth of the capital of Judea, following the Jewish return from Babylonian Exile, through the rule of the Hasmonean priest-kings and Herod the Great,and finally into its turbulent days under Roman administration. Notley presents a detailed and easily readable account of the physical setting of the Holy City - the one that would have been know by Jesus on his pilgrimages from Galilee. Different from other works on the archaeology of Jerusalem, the present book weaves in a compelling and accessible fashion the archaeological artifacts and visible vestiges of the city's past together with the eyewitness descriptions by who knew it first-hand.
