Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1232 – Scott Carroll: Writing in the First Century


An article in the New York Times has information on plans for a national Bible museum, being put together by the folks who run Hobby Lobby. The Bible expert who will be the executive director of this museum is Scott Carroll, who was a guest on our show back in 1998. So this week we’re featuring another program from our archives, as we listen once again to Scott Carroll talk about his research into the state of writing in the first century, when the Gospels were written (according to the traditional view).

No definitive word yet on whether the Bible museum will be located in Dallas or Oklahoma City. But so far they have acquired 30,000 Bibles and related objects. That seems to be quite a collection.
