Qumran Cave 12 + 2017 Excavation Plans

With John DeLancey

The 11 caves in which Dead Sea Scroll materials were found more than a half century ago have been joined by one more cave, cave #12. No new scrolls were found, but archaeologists did find evidence of scroll storage jars and related materials left behind by looters who plundered the site decades ago. We discuss this find and several other sites where archaeology is going on this year with John DeLancey, who will be the co-leader of our May 2018 TB&TS Israel Study tour.

With Eric Cline

Israel is not the focus of this new book by Eric Cline: 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed. But the collapse that it describes creates the conditions out of which Israel emerges. The book is just out, and may soon be a best seller.
