Item Description...
Overview
Recent books about Jesus and early Christianity can be divided into two kinds: those that examine the life and work of the historical Jesus prior to his death and those that reconstruct events between Jesus' death and the writings of the first Gospels. Sawicki's provocative book challenges the result of both kinds of research by using both archaeology and anthropology to situate Jesus clearly in his Galilean cultural context.

Publishers Description
Recent books about Jesus and early Christianity can be divided into two kinds: those that examine the life and work of the historical Jesus prior to his death and those that reconstruct events between JesusGCO death and the writings of the first Gospels. SawickiGCOs provocative book challenges the results of both kinds of research by using both archaeology and anthropology to situate Jesus clearly in his Galilean cultural context. Sawicki contests recent portraits of Jesus as a Mediterranean peasant, a Cynic sage, or the convener of a fellowship of equals. In addition, she calls into question readings of ancient Galilee that emphasize it as a society marked simply by economic stratification or by an GC honor-shameGCY sociology. Rather, she discovers the Galilean JesusGCO indigenous cultural idiom in its material structures for the negotiation of kinship, the management of labor, the distribution of commodities, and the construction of gender. SawickiGCOs book is the first to balance classical urban archaeology against the more recent archaeology of villages and of local and regional commerce. It frames current issues in Jesus research in terms that can guide both ongoing village excavations in Israel and responsible exegesis of the Gospels in church and academy. Marianne Sawicki is the author of Seeing the Lord: Resurrection and Early Christian Practices. For: Seminarians; graduate students; biblical archaeologists

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting Perspective on First Century Galilee  May 6, 2007
This book attempts to understand Jewish religion from the inside in first century Galilee. The autor's basic thesis is that first century Jews (at least in Galilee) saw the world in terms of flows--flows of water, goods, money, and people--originating in God and passing through the countryside. Their conflict with Roman power lay in the Roman's diversion and damming of those flows.

The difficulty with the book is the author's failure to provide an adequate definition of her argument. Her ideas are very interesting, and at times seem persuasive, but in the end there is a failure of communication. In the hands of another author willing to spend more time leading the readers, I think her thesis might be more effective.
 
Incorporating and extending beyond the latest research  Oct 5, 2003
Crossing Galilee by Marianne Sawicki draws upon both archaeology and anthropology to reveal to contemporary readers the Galilee of Jesus' day, and to challenge readings of ancient Galilean society as economically stratified and marked with an "honor-shame" sociological interpretation. Incorporating and extending beyond the latest research, Crossing Galilee pursues the truth of what life was once like in a thoughtful, detailed, and scholarly manner. Highly recommended for Biblical studies shelves, Crossing Galilee is an especially recommended title for non-specialist general readers with an interest in Biblical Archaeology.
 
Living Water  Feb 14, 2003
The history of this tiny land is, Sawicki reminds us, a history of movement. The movement of armies, of goods, of individuals, of men, of women, and especially water. In this highly readable book, she outlines how archeological remains provide, not a static picture of things in place, but rich evidence of a social and cultural "place" in which people and objects are defined by their movement or flow. She uses the imagery of water "living water" flowing uninterrupted from rainful to cistern to river to sea, as the underlying metaphor of a culture formed by its environment. Sawicki's careful use of both archeological and textual evidence enhances her accessible prose and provides a grounding in scientific methodology for her vivid descriptions ideas and cultural suppositions. This is a wonderful book for both those interested in architecture and environment, as well as those interested in Biblical study. I read it as I researched concepts on the Spirit of Place and it both challenged me and added to my understanding.
