« Three Presumptuous Sins of Teachers by Ronald T. Habermas | Main | Which Greek Text? (Monday with Mounce 20) »


The coin is the most famous of the Judea Capta coins. They were first minted by Vespasian, to celebrate Titus' (Vesbasian's son) capture of Judea in the First Jewish Revolt. The imprint on the left and right reads Judea Capta (Judea Conquered). The SC at the bottom represents the amount a sestertius.

If I'm not mistaken, it is the Judea Capta coin minted by Vespasian to celebrate the caputre of Jerusalem in 70 CE

That's right...And if you watch the video you'll see that one theme woven throughout the text is ancient coins. The coin on the cover comes from Harlan Berk's collection. Check out the Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. collection at www.harlanjberk.com
