Goliath's Gath 2015, part 2

With Aren Maier

The area along the ancient border between the Israelites and the Philistines is one of the areas of particular interest in the field of biblical archaeology right now, and one of the largest sites of the more than half dozen currently under excavation is Tel es-Safi/Gath. Gath was not only the home of Goliath and his giant kin, but also the largest of the cities of the Philistine pentapolis. We first talked with Arean Maier when he was beginning this excavation two decades ago, and it was time for an update on the latest discoveries, including a giant gate from the time of David and Goliath.

A NT Prof Digs at an OT Site, Khirbet Qeiyafa

With Prof. Dana Harris

Dana Harris teaches New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, yet she excavated at an Old Testament site this past summer, Khirbet Qeiyafa. Khirbet Qeiyafa overlooks the Elah Valley, where David and Goliath had their confrontation. On this program she explains why she ended up where she did, the importance of connecting archaeology with textual studies, and the similarities between archaeology and textual studies.
