From Qeiyafa to Lachish

With John DeLancey

The archaeological sites of Khirbet Qeiyafa and Tel Lachish give us biblical connections to the reign of King David and to the conquests of the Assyrians and the Babylonians. We visited both sites during the same day during our 2018 Archaeology Adventure Study Tour and we also have them on our itinerary for our March 2020 tour. Khirbet Qeiyafa overlooks the Elah Valley, where David met Goliath. This unusual city may or may not be mentioned in the Bible, depending on the clues you read. Lachish is mentioned prominently, it was the most important city in Judea outside of Jerusalem.

2019 Excavation Plans

With John DeLancey

Tour host John DeLancey joins us once again as we discuss some of the dig plans that have been announced for the 2019 excavation season. This is an annual tradition that we started way back around 35 years ago. Our discussion is designed to give listeners a quick overview of some of the institutional excavations, where they are happening, and their biblical connections. In addition, we are once again inviting our listeners to join us on a trip to Israel to see the sites that we talk about. We first did a tour like this in 1985. We’ve done a number of tours since, most recently just last May. And we’re going to be going again in March, 2020. Find out more details on our Archaeological Adventure Study Tour website.
