Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1165 – 1166 Randy Smith – Tel BeerSheva


From Dan to BeerSheva, the Bible says, about the length and breadth of ancient Israel. We’ve gone to Tel Dan numerous times. The last time we were in Israel was the first time we included Tel BeerSheva on the itinerary. And there was a surprise waiting there for us, a newly excavated water system. Our commentary is from professor Randy Smith of the Christian Travel Study Program. Our tour intersected with professor Smith’s tour several times (not surprising since we used his travel agent) and we profited from his expertise greatly.

On the second segment professor Smith discusses two more unusual features of Tel BeerSheva, a reconstructed horned altar that was discovered on the site, and the ancient well at the city gate, the deepest well in ancient Israel.
