1082 – Masada May Fall Again


Catching up on some recent news stories about recent discoveries and developments, this week’s program reviews a new theory for the location of the Jewish Temples on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, a story on the uncovering of the main commercial street between the Temple Mount and the Pool of Siloam, the announcement of the discovery of a 5,000-year old Semitic text written with Egyptian hieroglyphics in an Egyptian tomb, and concerns about the stability of Herod’s desert mountaintop fortress of Masada. These are all fascinating stories, illustrating once again that major discoveries and developments are being made all the time.
