Volunteering to Excavate at Gath

With John DeLancey

Archaeology is the rare science in which untrained laymen (and women) can make major discoveries. From the beginning we hosts of The Book & The Spade, and some of our guests, have invited listeners to volunteer to participate in these excavations, and some listeners have done so. On this program we explore just exactly how one goes about volunteering for an excavation in Israel. Dr. John DeLancey, co-leader of our May Israel tour, has volunteered on three different excavations in recent years. This summer he spent a week at the excavation of Tel es-Safi/Gath, one of the five Philistine cities and the home town of Goliath.

The New ESV Archaeology Study Bible, part 2

With John Currid

The new ESV Archaeology Study Bible, published by Crossway, joins the NIV Archaeology Study Bible published about a dozen years ago by Zondervan. In these two programs we talk with one of the main editors, John Currid, of Reformed Theological Seminary, about how the project came together, what's unique about this particular volume, and about some of his own archaeological experiences along the north shore of the Sea of Galilee, and along the Mediterranean Coast at ancient Carthage.
