Jesus & the Remains of His Day, part 3

With Craig Evans

More on Jesus and the archaeology that illumines his three year ministry, including more on what may be his family home in Israel, the ossuaries that are known (suspected at least) of his contemporaries, and one archaeologist whose attempt to connect a tomb to Jesus went way off base.

Unconfirmed Traditions

With Prof. Keith Schoville

Some well-known Biblical traditions have no basis in fact. On this program we discuss two of them: the Valley of Gehenna and the rope around the high priests ankle. We also discuss a couple of recent reports of new discoveries that do not seem to be what they were purported to be. And we discuss plans for excavations in the Biblical city of Sidon.
