About the Author

Carl E. Savage is director of the Doctor of Ministry Program at Drew University and serves as assistant director of excavations for the Bethsaida Excavations Project.


This book, small though it is, contains information that will cause the reader to consider the importance of this "lost" site to Biblical Archaeology and History. Dr. Savage gives a wonderful overview of the importance of the Jewish nature of Bethsaida during this book first, if you are interest in the history of Bethsaida and how it fits into the First Century C.E.. In his illuminating, well-researched book examining the site of Et-Tell, also known as Bethsaida, Carl E. Savage explores archaeological evidence to offer readers a portrait of the religious beliefs and practices of the community living near the north shore of the Sea of Galilee during the first century CE.
*Israel Book Review*

Carl Savage's Biblical Bethsaida will certainly become one of the 'must read' books for scholars of the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and archaeology. The book's documentation and his far-reaching conclusions about Galilee in the time of the first century CE establish a new standard for works on biblical archaeology.
*Richard A. Freund, director, Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies, University of Hartford*

Bethsaida is the only site that has yielded sufficient archaeological remains to shed light on a place pivotal to the ministry of Jesus. For anyone who is interested in the life of Jesus this book is absolutely a must.
*Rami Arav, Director, Bethsaida Excavations Project, University of Nebraska at Omaha*
