Chapter Summary

This chapter begins by establishing a critical framework for assessment of archaeological reports. It addresses several issues that have troubled recent historical studies of Galilee and its most famous son, Jesus of Nazareth. The Judean Temple state, under Hasmonean administration, launched a military campaign to annex Samaria and Galilee. This conquest took place during the late second through the early first centuries B.C.E. Jewish ethnicity and religious sensibility are difficult to define, even today among living people. One effect of the heightened attention to sharp edges for Judaism, in Hasmonean-occupied Galilee, is the growth of a shadow population who are placed outside of that Judaism by those who claim to be inside.

Keywords: Galilee; Hasmonean; Jesus of Nazareth; Judaism
