A Palace and Two Temples

With Clyde Billington

News stories have been published in recent months about a palace of the kings of Israel, near the modern city of Afula, and two temples: one Israelite and one Canaanite. A road project near Afula, in the Jezreel valley has uncovered the largest palace associated with the House of Omri (Ahad, Jezebel, etc.). Interestingly, it’s just about a half dozen miles from Tel Jezreel, where they had another palace. We also discuss a Canaanite temple excavated at Tel Lachish, and an Israelite temple excavated just outside of Jerusalem, less than a half dozen miles from the “official” Jerusalem temple.
