  3. BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY: THE GREATEST HITS

    Classes & Multi-Week Courses / 90 mins
    Recent discoveries have shed new light on the world that produced the Jewish Bible. In some cases, these archaeological finds support and augment the Biblical narrative we’ve inherited, and in others, Biblical “history” seems to be challenged. Among the sites and topics we’ll examine closely are: -Jerusalem, its water systems, the Second Temple and Kotel -Megiddo (site of a future Armageddon) -Major finds about King David and his empire -The earliest known Biblical inscription (with a Mr. Spock bonus!) -Evidence regarding the exodus from Egypt Instructor: Ken Cohen
