Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

#1021 Philistines

This week’s program started out as an update on the archaeology of the five Philistine Pentapolis cities: Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gaza, Gath and Ekron. But there was so much to talk about at Gath and Ekron I don’t think we made it to the other three. We’ll have to cover them some other time.

One more note: the BBC is doing a Biblical Archaeology series on The Search for the Historical Jesus, something we covered in program #990 with Professor Ben Witherington. But give a listen anyway.
