Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Public interest in biblical archaeology is at an all-time high, as television documentaries pull in millions of viewers to watch shows on the Exodus, the Ark of the Covenant, and the so-called Lost Tomb of Jesus. Important discoveries with relevance to the Bible are made virtually every year - during 2007 and 2008 alone researchers announced at least seven major discoveries in Israel, five of them in or near Jerusalem. Biblical Archaeology offers a passport into this fascinating realm, where ancient religion and modern science meet, and where tomorrow´s discovery may answer a riddle that has lasted a thousand years. Archaeologist Eric H. Cline here offers a complete overview of this exciting field. He discusses the early pioneers, such as Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie and William Foxwell Albright, the origins of biblical archaeology as a discipline, and the major controversies that first prompted explorers to go in search of objects and sites that would ´´prove´´ the Bible. He then surveys some of the most well-known biblical archaeologists, including Kathleen Kenyon and Yigael Yadin, the sites that are essential sources of knowledge for biblical archaeology, such as Hazor, Megiddo, Gezer, Lachish, Masada, and Jerusalem, and some of the most important discoveries that have been made, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Mesha Inscription, and the Tel Dan Stele. Subsequent chapters examine additional archaeological finds that shed further light on the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, the issue of potential frauds and forgeries, including the James Ossuary and the Jehoash Tablet, and future prospects of the field. Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction captures the sense of excitement and importance that surrounds not only the past history of the field but also the present and the future, with fascinating new discoveries made each and every season. 1.

Israel conjures up myriad associations for peoples of all cultures and religious backgrounds. Inextricably associated with the world´s three most prominent religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), Israel is steeped in history and conflict, much of which is known through the tales of biblical figures such as Moses, David, Solomon, and, of course, Jesus Christ.But how much of the Bible can be relied upon as accurate history? And how much of the biblical record can be verified through archaeology? Esteemed professor, researcher, and author Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University addresses these and other questions in this fascinating series of lectures. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric H. Cline.

Winner of the Biblical Archaeology Society’s Award for best popular book published in archaeology.On a cold, cloudy day in early February 1985, Shelley Wachsmann, then resident nautical archaeologist for the Israel Department of Antiquities and Museums, drove to Kibbutz Ginosar, an agricultural settlement near the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Two brothers, avid amateur archaeologists, had found a boat buried in the lake, its outlines revealed by receding lake waters. The boat was ´´possibly ancient,´´ according to the handwritten note placed on Wachsmann´s desk a day or two before. So begins the fascinating story of The Sea of Galilee Boat, as Wachsmann narrates the intriguing discovery and painstaking excavation of the very first biblical-era boat ever found in the Sea of Galilee.The book is published by Texas A&M University Press. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks.´´An excellent model for archaeological reporting that bridges the gap between research and the lay reader.´´ (The Biblical Archaeologist)´´Wachsmann´s pleasure in his work is evident and well conveyed by his personal reflections.´´ (American Journal of Archaeology)´´A pleasure to read; it is good science, and it is just plain fun.´´ (Biblical Archaeology Review) 1.

Masada: From Jewish Revolt to Modern Myth , Hör...

A new account of the famous site and story of the last stand of a group of Jewish rebels who held out against the Roman EmpireTwo thousand years ago, 967 Jewish men, women, and children - the last holdouts of the revolt against Rome following the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple - reportedly took their own lives rather than surrender to the Roman army. This dramatic event, which took place on top of Masada, a barren and windswept mountain overlooking the Dead Sea, spawned a powerful story of Jewish resistance that came to symbolize the embattled modern State of Israel. The first extensive archaeological excavations of Masada began in the 1960s, and today the site draws visitors from around the world. And yet, because the mass suicide was recorded by only one ancient author - the Jewish historian Josephus - some scholars question if the event ever took place. Jodi Magness, an archaeologist who has excavated at Masada, explains what happened there, how we know it, and how recent developments might change understandings of the story. Incorporating the latest findings, she integrates literary and historical sources to show what life was like for Jews under Roman rule during an era that witnessed the reign of Herod and Jesus’s ministry and death. 1.

This dusty 4,000-year-old clay tablet, written in an ancient script called cuneiform, turns out to be a recipe for building an Ark. Then, Mishy Harman is the host of the Israel Story radio program. The first season of Israel Story in English starts August 18th on the Vox Tablet podcast. Next, biblical archaeology can rewrite and reshape history. But there’s theology at stake, too. Like when the Gnostic Gospels were discovered in 1945 buried in the Egypt. That´s followed by Samuel Delany’s review of Call Me Ishmael by Charles Olson. Finally, Like you, we were shocked this week to hear about the death of Robin Williams. His softer side shines through in a conversation he had with fellow comedian Marc Maron a few years ago, on Maron’s WTF podcast. [Broadcast Date: August 13, 2014] 1. Language: English.

The Sword of Peter: A Biblical Adventure, Book ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The search for the legendary Sword of Peter... Two thousand years ago, when the Romans came to arrest Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, the disciple Peter cut off the ear of an innocent man. Jesus rebuked Peter and quickly healed the servant´s ear - and the Sword of Peter took on supernatural powers. Fast forward to modern day where a Biblical archaeology quest for the Sword of Peter is imperative to both Israel and to the Christian world. It´s also a race against others who would possess and use the Sword of Peter for their own purposes, if they find it first. When Peter cut off a soldier´s ear with the sword, he was probably trying to cut off his head. A poor aim. Martial arts expert Dr. Sam Godfrey is the youngest professor retired from the Zion School for Biblical Studies. Achava previously left the Staff of Moses with him for safekeeping, and on that adventure, he fell in love with her. That path toward a romance seems forbidden because of her spiritual duties and divine destiny. A clan called the Sentinels believes that Sam has the sword. When they attack him in his home, he fights them. Using supernatural means, Achava shows up and helps him to defeat the intruders who have almost debilitated him with a mysterious powder. Achava needs to take Sam to Israel to save him. They meet up with Saeem, Achava´s longtime Arab friend who is dedicated to helping her locate and protect. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Romano.
