With Rev. Dr. Andrew Vaughn
Time and time again we come back to the debate over Jerusalem in the tenth century and the importance of David and Solomon. The debate has continued in archaeological circles for several decades. Eilat Mazar is in one corner and Israel Finkelstein is on the other side. And there are additional opinions from other archaeologists. Andrew Vaughn is a top notch biblical scholar and also the Executive Director of the American Schools of Oriental Research, the main organization for archaeologists and Bible scholars worker in Israel and the surrounding region. He helps us get to the bottom of issues that separate the main characters in this debate and sheds some light on some facts that may help resolve it.
