Biblical Archaeology in Context, part 2

With Randall Price

Well the book is out, it's called the Zondervan Handbook of Biblical Archaeology. It's a great resource of information about the relevant discoveries in biblical archaeology, book by book. This handbook makes the final connection to the biblical text that we sometimes fail to make in our discussions about the latest discoveries and developments, and is up-to-date with recent finds. The book also includes some good words about ARTIFAX, our quarterly news magazine about biblical archaeology.

Gezer Boundary Stones, part 2

With Prof. Eric Mitchell

Survey archaeology catalogs the surface features around an archaeological site. In order to understand the context of a site, surveys are key. Such is the case at Tel Gezer, an important biblical site that was first excavated over a century ago. Now there are excavations going on in the Gezer water system, and around the Iron Age gate, and there’s a detailed survey around Gezer. In this program we continue a discussion with Prof. Eric Mitchell, of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, about how survey archaeology is done and what they found at Tel Gezer this summer.
