Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

#1316 Jodi Magness – The Synagogue at Huqoq

NW Galilee ShoreThis view of the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee by Ferrell Jenkins shows an area where four early Jewish synagogues are currently in the process of excavation, and two more famous synagogues are nearby. The newest excavation began last summer at Huqoq, directed by Jodi Magness, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

What’s behind all of this attention to Galilee synagogues. Well, Jodi Magness explains the attraction for her. Tune in for a listen, and if you’re interested in volunteering for the excavation, Jodi would be glad to hear from you.
