Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1092 – Megiddo Archaeology Update


Recently uncovered evidence seems to indicate Megiddo was one of the major metropolises of the ancient world. This week’s program covers the evidence behind this assertion, from the latest Megiddo dig, directed by David Ussishkin and Israel Finkelstein. We also cover other Megiddo-related archaeology, particularly the discovery of the “armageddon church.”

It’s commonly considered that James Michener modeled the archaeological dig in his book The Source after Megiddo. If you’re traveling to Israel to learn more about archaeology and the land of the Bible, The Source is a great book to help you grasp the sweep of history represented by the archaeology that’s done in Israel. I recommend it to all the people considering joining our Book & the Spade tours.
