Heh, red flag: the title "Jesus of Nazareth" is a misnomer. The original Greek calls Jesus a "Nazarene" (Nazirene, Nazirite), which was not indicative of his home town, but a type of religious vow. Same with Mary Magdalene. She wasn't from Magdala. Magdalene might be a translation of the Hebrew word "migdal" (no vowels in Hebrew back then) which means tower (tower of faith?).

Otherwise that books sounds good.

Here's a link to the problem with "Nazareth."
