Assyrian Rock Reliefs, Pilgrim Road News

With Clyde Billington

Assyrian rock reliefs, carved into a rocky cliff along an ancient canal in Kurdistan, are the cover story in the latest issue of ARTIFAX, our biblical archaeology news magazine. This canal may have been dug by Israelite slave labor. We discuss the biblical significance of this discovery. We also discuss a recent discovery made in connection with the excavation of the Pilgrim’s Road, between the Pool of Siloam and the Temple Mount. A measuring table device used by an agoranomos to calibrate liquid measurement in the market place is an unusual looking artifact. And we discuss an Israelite name written on a piece of pottery found at Abel Beth Maacah, which indicates this border town belonged to the Israelites around 900 BC.
