- Frontline: From Jesus to Christ. In 1998, PBS’ Frontline series focused on a historical study of Jesus and the early Church. Although the show relies on more left-leaning scholarship, it does represent a good job raising the standard academic questions on the life of Christ.
- New Testament Theology (book series), this is amazon.com’s “Listmania!” list of the complete set of volumes in the New Testament Theology series. This should be on everyone’s bookshelf, or, at least, in everyone’s working bibliography.
- Evangelical Textual Criticism blog. Edited by Peter M. Head and Tommy Wasserman, this is a “forum for people with knowledge of the Bible in its original languages to discuss its manuscripts and textual history from the perspective of historic evangelical theology.”
- Orbis: The Standford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World. This site “reconstructs the time cost and financial expense associated with a wide range of different types of travel in antiquity. The model is based on a simplified version of the giant network of cities, roads, rivers and sea lanes that framed movement across the Roman Empire. It broadly reflects conditions around 200 CE but also covers a few sites and roads created in late antiquity.” It’s a little after the time of the NT, but it’s still helpful to get a sense of space during that time.
