Discovering Dalmanutha

With Prof. Ken Dark

In the same spirit as the Jezreel Valley Regional Project discussed by Matthew Adams a few weeks ago, Professor Ken Dark of the University of Reading Research Center for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies is working on a landscape study of the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, particular the Plain of Ginosar or Genneserat, along the northwest shore. While surveying that landscape in 2012 he discovered the remains of a previously unidentified village. Based on a few biblical clues from the gospels, he’s suggested that the site may be Dalmanutha, the place to which Jesus retired after the feeding of the 4,000 in the gospel of Marka (not to be confused with the feeding of the 5,000). .

But now Daniel Wallace, the founder of The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, and a professor at Dallas Seminary, has announced the discovery of a first century fragment of the gospel of Mark. More hyperbole or an authentic claim? We discuss prof. Wallace’s New Testament scholarship and the search for ancient scripture.
