Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

#1314 Jerusalem Cardo & The Samaritan Inn

Western Wall Plaza Excavations

Western Wall Plaza Excavations

On our last Holyland Study Tour in 2008 we saw some excavations going on along the western edge of the Western Wall Plaza. We had already had reports of discoveries in that area and finally we have a report on the results of the excavation in the January-February issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. So we discussed the article on this week’s program, along with two more articles in the latest issue: the story of the Good Samaritan Inn  Mosaic Museum, and possible evidence for Israel in Egypt that predates the Merneptah stele (More on that to come in the weeks ahead).

Speaking of Holyland Study Tours, we’re finalizing plans for our 2013 tour to Israel. Let us know if you would like to join us, as we visit a number of the sites we’ve been talking about.
