Shiloh Excavations Resume in 2017

With Scott Stripling

Scott Stripling is once again our guest to report on the end of the Associates for Biblical Archaeology excavation in Israel, this year at Shiloh, since they have closed the excavations at Khirbet el-Maqatir. Shiloh, of course, was the location of the tabernacle and the ark of the covenant for most of the almost 400 years (by the biblical account), between the time of the exodus and conquest and the establishment of the temple in Jerusalem in Solomon’s time. Many years ago an archaeologist told me that there wasn’t much left to excavate at Shiloh but that is apparently not the case, as Scott fills us in on what happened during this first season and what they are looking for in the seasons to come.

Forty Years of Biblical Archaeology Reviews

With Hershel Shanks

In the early days of The Book & The Spade radio program, we relied on two key resources to find out what was going on in biblical archaeology: Biblical Archaeology Review and the Jerusalem Post. Now, with the internet, many more sources are available to us. But Biblical Archaeology Review continues to be the of the leading resources for information on biblical archaeology. So, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Biblical Archaeology Review, we talked with Hershel Shanks about the world of biblical archaeology news and the significance of biblical archaeology.

Christmas - Back to the Basics, part 2

With Kenneth Bailey

Christmas comes to us laden with 2,000 years of tradition. Although the traditions are often aimed at helping us become more familiar with the holiday, they sometimes obscure the basic account of the gospels. Kenneth Bailey is the author of Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes (published by InterVarsity Press), which is based on 40 years of living and teaching in the Middle East.
