Horses and Dogs in the Bible

With Clyde Billington

The recent discoveries of two separate horse figurines in northern Israel, reported in our magazine ARTIFAX, and an article about "Dogs in the Biblical World" in Biblical Archaeology Review, gave us the opportunity to talk about these two biblical species. Typically we think of camels and donkeys as biblical animals, but horses are mentioned from Genesis to Revelation, and dogs are also mentioned in the biblical and apocryphal books. In this program, my ARTIFAX co-editor Clyde Billington and I discuss what the Bible and the archaeology has to say about horses and dogs

Domestication of Camels, part 2

With Titus Kennedy

Following up the previous program's interview with Todd Bolen, with additional information from Titus Kennedy, for my story on camel domestication for Christianity Today. Titus is an adjunct professor at Biola University. He wrote a paper that was published in Bible and Spade magazine in 2010 which covered a lot of evidence of camel domestication in the second and even third millenium BC, much earlier than the deceptive news release from Tel Aviv University would have one believe.

Domestication of Camels

With Todd Bolen

Headlines from the New York Times to Fox News report that archaeologists have determined that camels were domesticated around 930 BC in Israel, and that therefore the camels in the stories of the Genesis patriarchs were an anachronism. But not so fast. There are some holes in their case as identified by Todd Bolen, professor of Biblical Studies at The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, CA, and editor of Bibleplaces.com. In this program we also look at a new pottery database that will help archaeologists refine their dating.
