IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BIBLICAL TEXTS - AN ARCHAEOLOGIST’S NOTES

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BIBLICAL TEXTS - AN ARCHAEOLOGIST’S NOTES

Professional archaeology starts in the 19th century, and biblical archaeology became a serious subject only about 130 years ago. Michael Chernin - an Israeli tour guide, historian, and archaeologist spoke to us about all the most significant archeological finds and the early historians who influenced archeology as a science. He told us about Robinson and Conrad Chik, the excavations and research around the Temple Mount, how one discovery changed the scientific point of view on the House of David and King Solomon's rule and existence. In Israel, we have two leading archaeological schools, Jerusalem and Tel Avivian, that debate the historical accuracy of biblical texts to this day.

Such a great lecturer! We should learn more about this topic, which changes our whole perspective on Biblical texts! Thank you for bringing such professional lecturers to teach in Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli!
