According to the NT Gospels, Jesus was from the previously unknown village of Nazareth in the lower Galilee. Just a few km away was the royal city of Sepphoris, which is not once mentioned in the New Testament. The coins recovered from various excavation sites in and around Nazareth combine with other archaeological finds to help us assess Jesus' hometown in the first century as well as subsequent developments.
Further publications, exhibitions and events are planned, including curriculum resources for use in schools and in theological education. Details will be posted here as they become available:
