With Scott Stripling
After our discussion of the 2016 Khirbet el-Maqatir excavation season, Scott Stripling went on to tell us about exploring a 2,000-year old drainage tunnel near the Jaffa Gate, which may have connected Herod's palace with the Temple Mount.
With Todd Bolen
At the beginning of nearly every year we take a couple of programs to preview the planned excavations for the next dig season. This year we start with Abel Beth Maacah, a brand new excavation along the northern border of Israel. My guest is Todd Bolen, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, California, and editor of BiblePlaces.com. For many years Todd lived in Israel, taught at the college’s Israel Bible Extension (IBEX) program, and visited these sites on a regular basis.
