Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

#1303-1304 Digging in Jerusalem, with archaeologist Eilat Mazar

Earlier this year I interviewed Eilat Mazar for a profile which has now been published in the November issue of Christianity Today magazine.

Mazar is a top archaeologist but is also controversial, in part because she is not self conscious about all of the Biblical Archaeology baggage that seems to bother so many modern archaeologists who work in Israel.

So why does a secular Jew, who says she is not religious, have such a strong connection to the Bible? That’s what we explore in this interview and the article.

Additional portions of this interview were used in program #1288, 15 weeks ago.
