Echo at Omrit

With Prof. Daniel Schowalter

Intriguingly, the gospels do not say that Jesus and His disciples went to Caesarea Philippi, but rather the region of Caesarea Philippi. So this Herodian temple being excavated by Carthage College professor Dan Schowalter and his colleagues, just three miles from modern Banias (Caesarea Philippi), is just close enough to squeeze into that story. What has been found at Omrit is quite interesting, including an inscription which mentions the nymph Echo. Professor Schowalter returns to The Book & The Spade to bring us up-to-date on the latest developments, on this excavation which just gets more and more interesting.
