Jesus Went Through A Pandemic, Too

This interview is part of an on-going series with Professor David Fiensy, one of the world's leading experts on the archeology of Galilee with a focus on the New Testament era. Today we will discuss the pandemic which Jesus dealt with, the recurring epidemic of Malaria which sheds new light on the account of the fever of Peter's Mother-in-Law as well as other accounts. The relevance of this newly uncovered knowledge to our own time should be obvious. Professor Fiensy is the author of The Archaeology of Daily Life: Ordinary Persons in Late Second Temple Israel.
