The Heights of David and Khirbet Qeiyafa

With Clyde Billington

Professor Clyde Billington, my co-editor on ARTIFAX magazine, has an article in the latest issue taking another look at Khirbet Qeiyafa. This is a site we’ve discussed a number of times because of its role reframing the debate over David and Solomon and the early Iron Age in Israel. Professor Billington draws a possible connection between Khirbet Qeiyafa and the Karnak inscription of Pharaoh Shoshenq.
