Khirbet Qeiyafa Shrines, part two

With Prof. John Monson

Just a few weeks ago, archaeologist Yosef Garfinkel announced some of the most exciting finds of the 2011 excavation season, a couple of small, portable shrines. What do these shrines have to say about the Israelite monarchy and the Israelite religion of 3,000 years ago? In these two programs we discuss the significance of the Qeiyafa excavation with John Monson, a professor of Old Testament and Semitic languages at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Monson and his students are excavating at Qeiyafa.
