1031-1032 Bryant Wood and the Israelite Conquest
This pair of programs highlights Bryant Wood of the Associates for Biblical Research. Bryant is best known for his reanalysis of the excavations of Jericho. He believes the archaeological finds at that 9,000 year old city near the Jordan River substantiate the Biblical story of the Israelite conquest, contrary to what many archaeologists today believe. We first talked with him about it back in 1990, shortly after his article on the topic appeared in the Biblical Archaeology Review. In this conversation we revisit this critical focus of Biblical Archaeology, the time when Israel became a nation.
