Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1206 – Tall Jalul and Khirbet Omrit


On this week’s program we discuss the excavations at Tall Jalul in Jordan, part of the Madeba Plains Project, as well as the Roman ruins at Omrit, possibly the remains of a temple that Herod built to honor Augustus Caesar. These are two excavations that are slightly off the beaten path, but very important for Biblical Archaeology.
