With John DeLancey
An interview with Rev. Dr. John DeLancey, co-leader of our Israel tour, at the end of our 2015 Book & The Spade Holyland study tour. The tour took place as we lingered outside the Garden Tomb in East Jerusalem, and we discussed his perspective on visiting the Holyland.
With Prof. Keith Schoville
On our last Holyland Study Tour in 2008 we saw some excavations going on along the western edge of the Western Wall Plaza. We had already had reports of discoveries in that area and finally we have a report on the results of the excavation in the January-February issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. So we discussed the article on this week’s program, along with two more articles in the latest issue: the story of the Good Samaritan Inn Mosaic Museum, and possible evidence for Israel in Egypt that predates the Merneptah stele (More on that to come in the weeks ahead).
With Tikva Levine
For the Christmas and Hanukkah season we’ve reached into the archives and retrieved a program that came out of our 1994 Book & The Spade Holyland tour. It’s a quick visit to some of the most well known churches in the Holyland, churches at locations associated with the life of Jesus Christ. Our tour guide, archaeologist Tikva Levine, shares information on the historical background of these churches.
