The Conquest and Archaeology

With Bryant Wood

The Exodus and Conquest is a murky period archaeologically. Many archaeologists believe that the archaeological evidence does not support the biblical account of what happened during that period. Bryant Wood is NOT one of those archaeologists. In fact, Bryant Wood has dedicated his archaeological career to investigating the evidence for the destruction of Jericho (about which we first interviewed him many years ago) and for the existence of the city of Ai, destroyed by the Israelites in Joshua 7 & 8. In the second half of a 2-part interview we discuss his perspective on what the evidence shows from Jericho, Hazor, and the site of Khirbet el-Maqatir, which he has been excavating for much of the last 20 years.

Khirbet el-Maqatir 2016, part 2

With Scott Stripling

It’s the final season for this excavation, just completed in Israel. We talk with dig director Scott Stripling about the evidence they’ve found which he believes builds a convincing rationale for connecting Khirbet el-Maqatir with the site of Ai, from Joshua 7-8, including the final two socket stones from the city gate.

Khirbet el-Maqatir, 2015, part 2

With Scott Stripling

Originally begun to test a theory about the location of the city of Ai from Joshua 7-8, Khirbet el-Maqatir has now developed into a multi-dimensional site with remains from almost a half dozen eras. It's the largest excavation in Israel in terms of manpower. Again this year Scott Stripling fills us in on the discoveries and developments of their 3-week season, including another Egyptian scarab, for the third year in a row.
